A baby had to be airlifted to hospital following a collision in which a car entered a drain on Tuesday morning.

A police spokesman said emergency services were called to the junction of Sweetlands Way and Station Road, in Gosberton, at 10.50am, after a blue Peugeot 206 overturned and went into a drain.

Inside the vehicle was a 21-year-old woman from Quadring and her three-month-old daughter. The baby was airlifted to the Queens Medical Centre, in Nottingham, due to fears she may have been submerged in water for a period of time.

The spokesman said the child was later reported to be recovering well in hospital and her mother escaped with cuts and bruises.

PC Wray is investigating the circumstances of the collision and is keen to speak to any delivery drivers, who may have been in the area at the time, particularly a white food van with a green stripe around the bottom.
