The patient taken to hospital after a car crashed into a ditch near Meldreth is no longer in a life-threatening condition, police have confirmed today.

An East Anglian Air Ambulance, numerous ambulance personnel, Cambridgeshire firefighters and police were all called to Malton Road after reports at about 10pm on Saturday of a car ending up in a ditch.

The incident, involving a blue Vauxhall Vectra, saw both driver and passenger – men in their 20s – sustain serious injuries.

One of the men was trapped in the car, and had to be freed by fire crews - his condition was life-threatening, and is now described as ‘serious’.

The pair were taken to Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge by land ambulance, after an air ambulance was stood down.

Anyone with information should call Cambs police on 101 and quote incident 183 of November 18, or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
