There have been a number incidents this morning across the area, which has been affected by heavy fog.
A spokesman for the ambulance service said: “It’s really important than people are vigilant when using the roads in weather like this, as reduced visibility can mean that accidents are more likely to happen.
“Allow extra time for your journey so that you can drive as slow as is necessary to be safe, leave extra space between you and the vehicle in front of you, and of course use your headlights – and if necessary your fog lights – to ensure you can be seen by others.”
