Two men and a woman on their way to work at the Malton Bacon Factory have died in a collision on the B1248 between Wetwang and Norton.

The three were on their way to work when their Ford Focus was involved in a collision with a van. They died at the scene.

Police are asking the driver of another van which was seen travelling along the B1248 towards Malton just after 6am to come forward, police say the driver is a vital witness and should come forward as a matter of urgency.

The van driver and any other witnesses are urged to contact North Yorkshire Police on 101 and pass information to the Force Control Room using number 0052 of the 27th November.

The road has been closed for most of the day but re-opened at 4.35pm.
