Man rescued from overturned lorry

A420 London Road, Bridgeyate

A man was rescued from the cab of his heavy goods vehicle after it overturned.

When crews arrived they found the vehicle on its side and the male driver, thought to be in his 50s, trapped inside.

After stabilising the vehicle, crews used a working platform to get access to the cab and assist the man to safety. He was taken to hospital by ambulance suffering from head injuries.

The road was closed while the incident was ongoing and for investigation and recovery work.
