A woman has suffered life threatening injuries after a London Ambulance Service (LAS) vehicle and a car crashed in Bromley this afternoon.

The incident happened in Masons Hill, near the junction with Tiger Lane, at around 2pm.

Masons Hill has been closed between Kentish Way and Holmesdale Road, causing severe traffic.

The brother of one of the people hurt in the crash, Billy Milhotra, said at the scene: "I am waiting to find out what happened.

"I hope they are all OK.

"They called me and I rushed from work. I am a bit worried."

A police sergeant added: "There has been an accident involving an LAS vehicle and another car.

"One person was in the LAS vehicle and two people were in the public car, which was a blue Vauxhall Astra.

"All three are being seen by paramedics."
