POLICE are appealing for witnesses to a two-car collision on the A169 at the weekend.

It involved a blue Fiat Panda and a blue MG ZR and happened close to RAF Fylingdales at about 9.25am on Saturday.

The five occupants of the Fiat Panda, which ended up on its side in a ditch, were taken to Scarborough Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. It is believed they are grandparents and their grandchildren who were visiting from the Birmingham area. The man driving the MG, from the Stafford area, was uninjured.

Emergency assistance was also provided by North Yorkshire fire service and staff from RAF Fylingdales.

Witnesses should phone North Yorkshire Police on 101, select option two.
