An ambulance and a car were involved in a crash near Dorchester

Police were called just before 1pm today to reports of a collision involving two vehicles on the A354 at Monkton Hill. 

The ambulance, a Mercedes Sprinter, and a red Citroen Berlingo were involved.

Initial reports suggested a car was overturned, but this was not confirmed by police.

A spokesman for Dorset Police said: "There is no mention of any injuries.

"Road closures were in place to allow for recovery of the vehicles.

"Both vehicles have now been recovered."

The road was partially blocked both ways between the A35/ B3147 (Stadium Roundabout) and the A353 (Jurassic Roundabout), and traffic was moving slowly between Weymouth and Dorchester.

The road has since been cleared and traffic is moving freely.
