FOUR people were taken to hospital after a two-car crash in Newport last night.

Fire crews from Maindee and Malpas attended the scene at 8.15pm and released three of the casualties from their vehicles on The Coldra roundabout.

One of the cars had left the carriageway.

The fourth person was released from the crash before fire crews arrived and all four were taken to hospital by the Welsh Ambulance Service.

Firefighters stayed at the scene of the accident for more than an hour.
