A MAJOR Poole road was closed this evening after two cars crashed.

The emergency services were called to the A349, close to Tesco Fleetsbridge, at 9.07pm, a police spokesman said.

At 10pm, police said that only slight injuries had been reported and the road was due to reopen once recovery was complete.

The spokesman earlier said that the crash, between a black Renault Clio and a black Vauxhall Corsa, both registered locally, was thought to have been head-on at the junction into the superstore.

She added that the fire brigade and ambulance had been called to the scene, but all those in the cars were out of their vehicles and were not seriously injured.
