Emergency services were called to two crashes in as many hours on the southbound M11 between junctions nine and eight last night.

The first collision happened at around 11.20pm yesterday (Tuesday, July 11) after a Peugeot 307 left the road and collided with a tree close to junction nine.

Fire crews from Stansted, Newport, Saffron Walden and Linton attended the scene and released one man trapped in his vehicle.

Two ambulance crews attended and treated the man, who was taken to Addenbrooke’s Hospital, Cambridge with a minor hand injury.

Rescue teams were sent out again at 1.04am today (Wednesday, July 12) to the same stretch of road, but closer to junction eight.

Fire crews from Stansted, Newport, Saffron Walden, Harlow and Loughton were sent to release two females trapped in a car.

Two ambulance crews and a rapid response vehicle attended the scene.

Two patients with back injuries were taken to Princess Alexandra Hospital, Harlow, for further care.

Their conditions are not believed to be life-threatening or serious.

The road was completely blocked for a time while emergency crews cleared the scene.
