Busy period for emergency services in the Staffordshire Moorlands

EMERGENCY services were called out three times in a 12-hour period to deal with road accidents in the Staffordshire Moorlands.
Two men – in their mid to late 20s – were arrested after fleeing the scene of a crash on the A52 between Longsdon and Endon at 9.30pm on Friday night.
They were the occupants of a car which ploughed into roadworks.
Police tracked them down and they were detained on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
Both were taken to the Royal Stoke University Hospital for treatment.
Hours later five young adults had a lucky escape from serious injury after the driver of a car lost control on a country road not far from the scene of the A53 crash.
A young man and woman were taken to hospital following the accident on Black Bank Road, between Cheddleton and Denford, shortly before 4am.
Emergency services were called out again yesterday morning to a three-vehicle collison on the A53 Leek to Buxton road at Upperhulme.
The accident occurred between the Winking Man pub and Royal Cottage at around 9.30am.
It is not believed anyone was seriously injured in the incident which involved a Waitrose delivery van.
