A main road was closed following a two car crash.

Police were called to reports of a collision near the Charborough Estate on the A31 just after 11.15am today.

A Jeep and a Vauxhall Astra were involved.

A Dorset Police spokesman said someone was trapped in their car but has since managed to get out.

The spokesman said: "Nobody is believed to be seriously injured.

"There is oil and fuel on the road. Highways have been called to assist."

The A31 was closed between Bere Regis and the Roundhouse Roundabout.

Motorists were being urged to use diversions.

The road has since reopened.
