Woman rescued from over-turned car in ditch

A WOMAN was trapped inside a car which was upside down in a water-filled ditch yesterday.

Firefighters from Bridgwater were sent to the scene of the incident – between East Hunstpill and Woolavington – after she called for help at about 6.15pm.

They smashed a window in the BMW and helped the woman to safety with the help of a ladder.

A spokesperson for the Devon and Somerset Fire and Rescue Service said: “An ambulance was requested for the lady who was suffering from scratches and bruises and the effects of being submerged in cold water.”
