The air ambulance was called to the scene following the smash.

Road traffic collision officers said the 24-year-old was travelling along the A6003 close to the Southern Gateway roundabout when her vehicle was involved in a three-car collision at about 2.10pm.

The collision involved a Vauxhall Vivaro vehicle travelling towards Corby and a Mitsubishi Shogun and a Vauxhall travelling in the opposite direction.
