TWO children have been seriously injured in a road accident.

A grey Nissan Qashqai collided with a white Ford Transit van at the junction of Middle Hill and Burcombe Road in Chalford just before 4.55pm yesterday, Thursday.

A seven-year-old boy and a three-year-old boy, both from Stroud and both passengers in the Nissan, were taken to Bristol Children's Hospital.

The seven-year-old boy suffered a serious head injury and the three-year-old boy a serious leg injury.

No one else was seriously injured.

Anyone who witnessed the crash but hasn't spoken to police is urged to call 101, quoting incident 440 of May 22.

Be nice to get an update on how Gabriel (the older boy) is doing, if the paper follows up on these things. I was one of the firefighters that cut him out of the car.

Can I thank everyone involved with this accident. Gabriel and Noah are my nephews and are making slow but steady progress at bristol children's hospital. Spent the day between bedsides and Noah although in a full leg cast with a broken leg is much brighter today. Gabe has been fairly out of it but today had couple of long periods of wakefulness and awareness. Slow progress in our eyes but docters all very hopefully of full recovery. We thank you all so much. A traumatic time for you and us!

Many thanks for updating on Gabriels and Noahs progress. I was one of the first on the scene to help and stayed with Deborah and Noah while the emergencies cared for Gabriel. I have been constantly thinking about them and I am so glad that they are all going to be OK. Please pass on my love and best wishes to Deborah and her family.
