The incident happened on Thursday, January 2 and involved one vehicle hitting a pillar.

The vehicle overturned, and the front looked particularly destroyed as a result. The pole in question fell across the road.

A statement published by the Saffron Walden Fire Service on its Facebook page read: "Along with crews from Haverhill, we were called to a car accident.

"On arrival, one car was in collision with a telegraph pole and rolled onto its roof. The occupants were left in the care of ambulance paramedics."
