Three men killed in A1 crash

Three men have died following a collision on the A1 in Lincolnshire, police have said.

The three-vehicle crash occurred just before 1am yesterday morning on the A1 northbound near Wothorpe, Stamford.

According to Cambridgeshire Police, the collision involved a blue VW Golf, a black BMW 520D and a red Land Rover Discovery.

The force said the three men - aged 34, 25 and 38 - died at the scene.

Another two people were rushed to hospital, where they remain with serious injuries.

A tweet from Cambridgeshire Constabulary last night reported closures along the A1 northbound between Wittering, Cambridgeshire, and Stamford. According to the post, the road was reopened around 10.40pm on Sunday.

Officers are appealing for dashcam footage and asking that anyone who saw the vehicles in the moments leading up to the incident to get in touch.

Cambridgeshire Police have said people can contact them via web chat, online forms or by calling 101 and quoting incident 24 of 16 January.
