Two men arrested following a serious crash in Derby have been released under investigation as enquiries continue.

At 1.10am this morning (September 9) we were called to reports of a serious collision at the junction of Friar Gate and Stafford Street in Derby.

An 18-year-old woman, who was the passenger in the Renault Clio, sustained serious, life threatening injuries and was taken to the QMC by air ambulance for treatment. She remains in a critical condition.
