The accident scene on Maybury Road

One man died as his car was engulfed in flames and a five-year-old girl and her family were taken to hospital.

The road was closed for most of Friday, leading to long traffic tailbacks.

The accident happened as a stolen grey Audi A3 was overtaking a row of four or five cars on the wrong side of the road, causing the family’s BMW to swerve and plough into the dead man’s Peugeot 206.
