A man has died after a major crash on the A6 in Derbyshire.

Police are calling for witnesses following the fatal accident which happened on the main road in the early hours of Sunday morning.

Emergency services were called to the A6, Higher Hallsteads between Dove Holes and the junction of the A623, just before 12.25am.

A white Vauxhall Corsa left the carriageway and came to a stop, on its roof, in a ditch nearby.

The driver of the car was taken to hospital with life-threatening injuries but died later in the day.

Three passengers also travelling in the Corsa were uninjured in the incident.

Investigating officers are keen to hear from anyone who was travelling in the area and witnessed what happened, or saw the Corsa prior to the incident.
