Pembrokeshire campsite crash: Baby was inside tent that was struck by car which veered off the road and injured nine people | UK News

A baby was inside the tent that was struck by a car after it veered off the road and crashed into a campsite – leaving two people in a serious condition and seven others injured.

Clare Harris, who runs the Newgale campsite in Pembrokeshire, has said the baby is “okay” after the ordeal.

It is not clear if the child is one of those who required hospital treatment.

Two people are in a serious condition in hospital after a blue Ford Fiesta collided with a number of people and the tent shortly after 10.30pm on Saturday.

One person was airlifted to the University Hospital of Wales, the Welsh Ambulance Service said.

Four were taken by ambulance to Glangwilli Hospital, while one was taken to Morriston Hospital.

Ms Harris, who runs the campsite with her husband Mike, said: “The car was speeding down the hill, realised it needed to slow down and tried to brake.

“It flipped and rolled several times, and crashed into the tent.

“There was a young child, a baby, in the tent at the time, thankfully they are okay.

“It’s a tragic accident that the police are dealing with, that’s all we can say at the moment.”

The car is believed to have been travelling from the village of Roch towards St Davids when it crashed off the A487.

Dyfed Powys Police said passengers in the car were among those injured.

Police said in a statement: “The road was closed to allow investigations and reopened at around 7.45am today.

“Officers are appealing for any information regarding the vehicle, a blue Ford Fiesta, and its occupants.

“We are especially interested in any dashcam footage or doorbell footage which may have captured the vehicle being driven from Roch to the scene of the collision at Newgale.”

HM Coastguard in Broad Haven said: “The team were paged at 11.23pm last night to assist with multi-agency incident in Newgale.

“We organised a helicopter site and supported paramedics with casualty care.”

A Welsh Ambulance Service spokesperson said: “We were called yesterday at around 22:40 to reports of an incident at Newgale Campsite, Pembrokeshire.

“We sent six emergency ambulances, one duty operations manager, one Cymru high acuity response unit and our crews were supported on scene by the emergency medical and retrieval transfer service and search and rescue helicopter.

“One patient was flown to University Hospital of Wales, four patients were taken by road to Glangwilli Hospital, and one patient was taken by road to Morriston Hospital.”

Fears for British car production unless deal struck with EU despite best May in four years | Business News

Promising growth in British car production could be cut short unless a deal is reached with the European Union (EU) in the coming months, an industry body has warned.

Britain recorded the best May for car production in four years, according to data from the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT).

But this figure was largely driven by exports to the EU.

The vast majority (79.5%) of the nearly 80,000 (79,406) cars produced in the UK in May 2023 were for export.

Domestic demand accounted for just 16,188 vehicles despite growing by 45%. That growth in demand in the UK was nearly double the 23% rise in exports.

However, of the exports, more than half (56%) of the cars were made for Europe, with less than a third (28%) of exports going to the next largest markets: the United States, China, Japan and Australia.

The dominance of export in British car-making has led the SMMT to call for continued tariff-free trade between the European Union and the UK, particularly for electric vehicles (EVs).

The organisation says EVs will face tougher rules of origin requirements – regulations that limit the value of material from a different country – from January unless the UK and EU can agree to have them postponed.

While production was up 27% from May 2022, an increase of 16,762 vehicles, it’s still 32% below the output of May 2019.

The car manufacturing sector has grappled with tough economic conditions in the form of slow economic growth, high inflation and rising rates.

There was an especially large growth in hybrid electric, plug-in hybrid and EV volumes – up 95% in May to 27,636 units, equivalent to 35% of all cars made in the month.

The sale of new petrol and diesel vehicles is banned from 2030 in an effort to reduce CO2 emissions.

This transition has been cast into doubt by Logistics UK, which has freight companies and suppliers as members. It said efforts to decarbonise were being hampered by high costs, a lack of Treasury support and an inadequate public charging network, meaning the transition to EVs can’t continue without state aid.

There are currently no battery factories in the UK, though Tata, the owner of the UK’s largest carmaker, Jaguar Land Rover, was reported to be building a gigafactory in Somerset.
