Firefighters and an air ambulance crew have freed two people stuck in a van which had gone into a ditch.

Crews were called to Bures Road, White Colne, near Halstead, just before 10.10am.

The Essex Air Ambulance arrived at the scene to rescue the woman, with the man being freed by the fire crews.

The incident was under control by around 10.30am.

An ambulance spokesman said both casualties are elderly and had suffered “non life-threatening injuries”.

Both were taken to Colchester General Hospital by land ambulance.
