EMERGENCY services have attended a road traffic collision at Old Hutton early this afternoon.

Police say that two vehicles - a Volkswagen Golf and a Ford Ka - were involved in a collision just past the motorway bridge.

There was a young child in the back of the Golf which was being driven by a 39-year-old Kendal man. The driver sustained minor injuries.

The Ford Ka was being driven by a 20-year-old from Kendal and she escaped unhurt.

Police say that a local farmer helped to move the vehicles from the road.
