When crews arrived they found a Peugeot vehicle on its side and a man in his 40s trapped inside.

Working alongside paramedics and crew from the air ambulance, firefighters used ladders and ropes to create a bridge over a rhine in order to access the vehicle which had left the road.

Firefighters then assisted paramedics to help the man on to a spinal board. He was taken to hospital by road ambulance suffering from suspected back and head injuries.
