Essex’s fire chief has thanked the public for their support after three crew members were injured when a fire service vehicle overturned at Stoke by Nayland last week.

Emergency services, including an air ambulance, rushed to the scene of the collision at around 7,40pm on Thursday, August 9.

Three fire crew members, from Essex County Fire and Rescue Service (ECFRS) were taken to hospital following the crash, one with a broken arm.

Jo Turton, ECFRS’s chief fire officer, thanked everyone who sent well wishes to the fire crew involved.

She said: The Service is supporting everyone involved in the incident and your kind comments will be passed to the crew. Two crew members who were checked over in hospital were able to go home with only minor injuries.

“One crew member, who has a broken arm, is receiving treatment in hospital and is expected to be able to go home soon.”
