A 27-year-old woman and two men aged 25 and 23 were killed in the collision on Radford Road.

Two men, aged 20 and 21, are in a stable condition in hospital.

According to the BBC, a 20-year-old man was arrested at the scene on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving and driving under the influence of alcohol.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman told the Leamington Observer: "Crews arrived to find a car that had left the road and been in collision with a tree and wall.

"Two men and one woman suffered multiple serious injuries in the crash. Unfortunately nothing could be done to save them and all three were confirmed dead at the scene by medics.
