A spokesman for Northamptonshire Fire and Rescue Service said: "An appliance from Mereway attended and found that four vehicles had been involved in the incident, with one of those vehicles having flipped onto its roof.

"The road was closed and the fire service requested that an ambulance be called as a woman was trapped in one of the vehicles.

"Hydraulic cutting equipment was used to release the woman, and the ambulance service have administered first aid to two people who have since been taken to hospital."
