An off-duty nurse rushed to the aid of a pedestrian who was injured in a collision on a busy Sheffield road this afternoon.

Emergency services were called to Gleadless Road, near Gleadless Townend tram stop, at around 3.30pm.

A South Yorkshire Police spokeswoman said a blue Nissan car had been in a collision with a male pedestrian believed to be approximately 90 years old.
