York firecrews assisted a female from a car after it came to rest in a ditch.

The driver of the car, a male in his 60s, was out of the car on fire brigade arrival and unharmed. However, the female passenger, also aged in her 60s, was unable to exit the vehicle due to her infirmity and due to the dense vegetation in the ditch which the car had come to rest.

The car was still on all four wheels, so the crews just needed to open the door to gain access, and then utilised a triple extension ladder as a makeshift bridge to enable the now released female to be able to get back to the higher roadway and into the care of paramedics.

She was given a precautionary check, but was not believed to require hospital attendance.
