Bleadon Road, Weston-super-Mare

Firefighters have rescued six people after their mini-bus was involved in a road traffic collision with another vehicle.

When crews arrived on the scene they found the casualties with cuts and bruises and suffering from shock. 

Crews quickly stabilised the vehicle and working alongside paramedics they assisted the casualties to safety. One elderly woman was unable to leave the vehicle so firefighters removed the seats of the mini-bus to make way for a stretcher.

The woman was then placed on to a spinal board and taken to hospital with the other casualties.

An air ambulance and doctor were also on the scene.
