Bedfordshire Police have now reopened Norse Road following a road traffic collision (RTC) between a car and a six-year-old at around 9.15am this morning.

As we reported earlier, emergency services, including the air ambulance, attended.

Norse Road was closed for around three hours. The child has been taken to Addenbrooke’s Hospital for further treatment.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Bedfordshire Police on 101 quoting reference number 96 of 16 July.
