Police are appealing for information after five people were left injured following a head-on collision in Birdwood.

The incident happened on the A40 outside the Kings Head pub at about 12.55pm on Saturday October 3.

A silver Ford Fiesta car driven by a 20-year-old man collided head-on with a blue Citroen C4 driven by a man in his 60s. The Ford driver was taken to Gloucestershire Royal hospital with injuries and his condition is described as serious but stable. The driver of the Citroen and the front seat passenger, a woman in her 50s were taken to Southmead hospital in Bristol. Their injuries were initially described as life-threatening, however their conditions have improved and that is no longer the case.

Two teenage girls travelling in the back of the Citroen were taken to Gloucestershire Royal with minor injuries.
