Two pensioners were seriously injured when their car left the road and hit a tree.

Emergency services were called to Henley Hill in Midhurst Road, near Fernhurst, to reports a black Honda CRV had left the road and collided with a tree at about 12.45pm on Wednesday.

The vehicle rolled after hitting the tree, injuring a 79-year-old woman and a 75-year-old man from Haslemere.

They were both taken to St George’s Hospital in London – the woman taken by air ambulance.

Sergeant Stewart Goodwin said: "The fire service attended and removed the passenger from the car and the road was closed for two and a half hours while emergency services were on the scene.

"We are appealing to anyone who saw what happened to contact police on 101 quoting Operation Romsey on 101 or email"
