Two people were injured in a crash in north Dorset. 

Two vehicles were involved in the crash which happened around 10.15am this morning on the B3081 close to the Longbury Hill Lane turning, west of Gillingham. 

Police, fire and ambulance crews were all sent to the scene and the road has been closed between West Bourton and Gillingham. 

Dorset Police confirmed two people have been injured but their injuries are not believed to be serious and no one is trapped in the vehicles. 

Firefighters from Gillingham and Wincanton fire stations attended.

A spokesman for the fire service said: "Crews assessed the casualties and made the scene safe, including cleaning up a spillage of engine oil. Casualties were left in the care of the ambulance service."

The council was also contacted due to debris on the road, and recovery for the vehicles was arranged.

The road remained closed while it was cleared but was reopened just before 1pm.
