A collision between a lorry and a car in Langley Mill on Thursday left a road closed for nearly two hours.

Four fire crews from Nottinghamshire attended and a male casualty was cut free from the car.
His injuries were not thought to be serious and an ambulance treated the man at the scene. The road was reopened at 2.45pm.
