There's been a fatality after a serious accident on the A31 at Wimborne.

A man in his 60s, from Fareham, has died after the campervan he was driving collided with a Dorset County Council lorry near the Esso Garage at around 10:15am this morning.

Dorset County Council confirmed their driver has been taken to Poole Hospital, and they will be helping Police with their enquiries.

A passenger in the campervan was also airlifted to Southampton General Hospital.

Dorset Police say both casulties have serious but not life threatening injuries. They have appealed to anyone with information to call 101, quoting incident number 24:126.

A spokesperson for the council said: "The members of Dorset County Council would like to express our sincere condolences to the family of the man who died and our hope that those injured in the crash make a full and speedy recovery."

The road was closed between the Lake Gates roundabout and the B3074, Blandford Road, while recovery and investigation work took place, and has now re-opened.
