Woman cut free from car

Burrington Combe, Blagdon

Firefighters have cut a woman free from her car following a road traffic collision involving two vehicles.

On arrival firefighters found two women in their 40s trapped in a Nissan Micra car. One was assisted from the vehicle and appeared to be unharmed.

The second woman was suffering from neck injuries, so firefighters used hydraulic cutting equipment to remove the roof. They then worked alongside paramedics to assist the woman on to a spinal board and she was taken to hospital.

Her injuries are not thought to be life-threatening.
