Exmouth firefighters were called out to a crash in the Woodbury area this morning (Thursday 13 January) at around 9am.

The crash involved two vehicles. One of them went into a ditch, and the male driver was trapped inside.

Together with crews from Clyst St George and Middlemoor, the firefighters cut the roof off the car and got him out.

He was then taken to hospital.

A spokesperson for Devon and Somerset Fire and Rescue Service said: "Crews were called to an RTC involving two vehicles, where one had gone into a ditch with the driver trapped inside.

"Crews arrived on scene and got to work with first aid, hydraulic cutting equipment, small tools and stabilisation equipment. The police and ambulance service were also on scene.

"Crews extricated the male casualty with a roof removal on the vehicle. The casualty was then taken to hospital. Crews made the scene safe and duty of care was left with the police."
