Woman rescued from Bleadon RTC

Cowslip Lane, Loxton, Bleadon

A woman has been helped from her car by firefighters after a road traffic collision.

When crews arrived on the scene they found a Peugeot car on its side and a woman, thought to be in her 30s, inside.

Working alongside paramedics and crews from the air ambulance, firefighters used hydraulic cutting equipment to fold the roof of the car back and create space for the woman to get out. She was then assisted to safety and handed over to paramedics for further assessment.
