An ambulance crew is recovering after their vehicle was hit by a car in Leicester.

The accident happened on Sunday evening in Leicester city centre, an East Midlands Ambulance Service (EMAS) spokeswoman confirmed.

The ambulance was stationary when it was struck by a car being driven at speed, EMAS said.
