A driver from Ashby was arrested for failing a breath test - after a collision which left three people with serious injuries.

Derbyshire Constabulary are now appealing for dashcam footage from the incident in South Derbyshire which happened on Christmas Eve.

The collision occurred last month in Repton Road, Willington, at around 7.45pm when a Vauxhall Astra collided head on with an Audi A3.

Three people in the Audi suffered serious injuries and were taken to hospital for treatment.

The driver of the Vauxhall Astra, a 33-year-old man from Ashby-de-la-Zouch, was arrested after failing a roadside breath test.

He has been released under investigation while enquiries continue.

A Derbyshire Constabulary spokesperson said: "We are now keen to hear from anyone who was travelling along Repton Road or Willington Road between 7pm and 8pm on 24 December and has dashcam footage.

"Anyone with any information is asked to contact us, quoting the reference 22000751070."
