Up to 20 military personnel have been injured in a crash between three troop carriers on Salisbury Plain, police said.

At least four people have been left with “life changing injuries” while the others are “walking wounded” following the incident, which happened at 6.30pm today in a field near Westdown Camp.

A Wiltshire Police spokesman said: “We received a call from the air ambulance at 6.30pm today who told us they were attending.

“First responders and three military ambulances were also at the location.

“We had reports of four to five people with life changing injuries and approximately 16 others ‘walking wounded’.

“The road traffic collision happened on a by-way which cuts through The Plain, hence why we were called.

“It is still regarded as a Wiltshire Police matter as it’s on a by-way, although it’s off the main road.”
