A man had to be freed by paramedics after his car came off the road at Kings Delph, Whittlesey and drove down a 20-foot embankment.

Firefighters used ladders and specialist stretchers to pull the driver from the embankment at 5.50pm last night.

Station Commander Ady Slack praised the actions of a member of the public, who administered first aid on the casualty before the paramedics arrived.

He also commended the ‘tireless’ work of the ambulance crews who worked with the casualty for over an hour before taking him to hospital in an ambulance.

Two crews from Stanground and Whittlesey returned to their stations by 7.49pm.
