A man has died following a collision between two lorries this morning.

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to the A500 in Wolstanton, Stoke on Trent at 5.10am and sent two ambulances, a paramedic officer and a BASICS doctor to the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “On arrival, crews discovered a man who was still in his cab following the collision.

“The man, who was in cardiac arrest, was freed from his vehicle by ambulance staff before they began administering CPR and advanced life support.
