One crew from Chatteris fire station and one crew from March were called to a road traffic collision on the A141 at Wimblington.

A car was upside down on its roof in a ditch on the side of the road. Crews used specialist cutting equipment to release one male casualty.

Crews returned to their stations by 12.10am.

The collision happened at around 10pm when the dark blue Vauxhall Vectra left the road on the March to Chatteris bypass.

It appears only one car was involved and had a male driver with no passengers.

Two fire engines, four police cars and an ambulance attended. The car door was removed to gain access to the driver.
