Two people were cut from their vehicle by firefighters after a crash in Leighton Road, Stanbridge near Leighton Buzzard Rugby Club.

Crews were called at 7.38pm yesterday (Monday, May 4) and when firefighters arrived they found a car in collision with a tree and a man and a woman, trapped in the front of the vehicle.

Firefighters used hydraulic equipment to release the woman who was taken to hospital by ambulance.

They then removed the roof of the vehicle to allow paramedics better access to assess the condition of the male driver. He was then freed from the crashed vehicle and then taken to hospital in the air ambulance.
