Firefighters assist vehicle from wall after RTC

Alfred Hill, Kingsdown, Bristol

Firefighters have been to the aid of a man, who managed to reverse his car up on to a wall.

When crews arrived on the scene they found a Peageot estate car on a small wall and a man in his 40s still inside the vehicle. He was unable to get out as there were fears that the vehicle would roll down the steep hill it was on.

Firefighters quickly stabilised the vehicle using blocks and lines and then assisted the man from the car.

They then attached the Hiab lifting arm from the rescue tender to the vehicle and lifted it up and back on to the road. The driver was then able to move the vehicle up the hill.
