Two children have been seriously injured after being hit by Land Rover in a horror smash.

An air ambulance landed at the scene to take the young victims of the smash to hospital.

They were hit by the vehicle in Ashton, Greater Manchester, late this afternoon.

The crash happened on Oldham Road in Tameside, just before 4pm.

A White Land Rover collided with two child pedestrians both aged under five, Greater Manchester Police confirmed.
