A woman suffered head injuries when two cars were involved in a crash that closed a residential street.

Police, ambulance and fire services were called to Longmore Avenue, in New Barnet, at 4.30pm on Saturday, where the vehicles had collided near the Royal Mail delivery office.

One woman was taken to Barnet Hospital with head injuries, which are not thought to be life-threatening, and a man was checked over at the scene by paramedics.

The road was closed for about an hour, causing disruption to bus routes 326 and 383, before the scene was cleared shortly after 5.30pm.
