A man and woman were injured after crashing into a tree when they were being following by the police in Sheffield.

The pair - a 22-year-old man who was driving and his 18-year-old female passenger - were travelling along the A61 Westwood New Road, when they crashed near to the Jet garage at Grenoside.

Officers alerted firefighters to the collision, at 3.25am this morning when they realised the two occupants of the Fiat Punto were trapped in their vehicle.

Firefighters removed the roof of the car.

The woman suffered pelvic injuries and the man was drifting in and out of consciousness.

They were both taken to hospital.
