A LEEDS United player was involved in a car crash between a Land Rover Defender and a police vehicle outside Elland Road this morning.

Defender Charlie Cresswell, 21, was unharmed in the collision near the West Stand entry gate.

He is available for the second leg of Leeds’ Sky Bet Championship semi-final play-off against Norwich tonight.

Emergency services were called to the scene and West Yorkshire police confirmed an officer was treated for minor injuries.

The police said their enquiries are ongoing and a spokesperson added: “At 10.13am (on Thursday), police were notified of a collision involving a police car and a Land Rover Defender on Elland Road, Leeds.

“An officer received medical treatment for minor injuries. No other injuries were reported. Enquiries are ongoing.”

Cresswell, who progressed through Leeds’ academy, has made seven appearances in all competitions this season, four of them off the bench.

He was an unused substitute in the first leg of Leeds’ play-off against Norwich on Sunday, which ended 0-0.

Leeds are bidding for an immediate return to the Premier League via the play-offs after finishing third in the table behind Leicester and Ipswich.
