Four, including two children, were injured.

Police say a Dutch registered car swerved into the oncoming lane and hit a motorhome travelling in the opposite direction - also Dutch registered. A Swiss delivery van was caught up in the collision.

The four injured were all in the car, which included two boys aged 7 and 9.

The tunnel was closed from 1.45pm and didn’t reopen until 6.

Several cars were trapped in the tunnel for that time.
