Firefighters use cutting gear to free casualties from two crashes

FIREFIGHTERS were called to free people from two crashes which happened on Suffolk roads today.

Crews from Ixworth, Elmswell and Bury St Edmunds were called shortly before 1pm to Bury Road, in Stanton, where three people were trapped inside a vehicle.

Police blocked the road while cutting gear was used to cut them free before paramedics took them to the West Suffolk Hospital.

Then, at 1.30pm, a man was freed by Melford, Bury and Sudbury firefighters after the car he was travelling was in collision with a tree.

When crews arrived in Bury Road, Lawshall, they found the car on its side in a ditch. Two children had already managed to free themselves by the time help arrived. All three casualties were taken to the West Suffolk Hospital.
