Three men are in a serious condition in hospital this morning after the car in which they were travelling struck a tree in Co Longford last night.

The single-vehicle collision occurred in the Kilmore area of Toome, close to Granard town shortly before midnight.

Emergency services attended the scene with the three men being taken to Cavan General Hospital and Tullamore's Midland Regional Hospital for treatment to what have been described as 'serious' injuries.

The road itself remains closed this morning pending a full examination by Garda Forensic Collision Investigation officers.

Local diversions are currently in place as investigations continue into the circumstances of last night's incident.
