A MAN has been taken to hospital with serious injuries after a collision with a car at Gatwick airport shortly after 5am this morning (Tuesday April 3).

A Sussex Police spokesman said: “There is no more information at present on the nature of the man’s injuries or when the road into the South Terminal is due to reopen.”
