Firefighters had to cut a woman out of her overturned car following a crash which saw the vehicle end up in a field in Clavering.
Fire crews from Newport and Stansted and paramedics from the East of England Ambulance Service attended the incident, which took place just after 6am this morning (May 31).
It took firefighters just under an hour to release the woman using specialist cutting equipment, and no other vehicle was involved in the crash.
Assistant divisional officer Kevin Haywood said: “The vehicle left the road and came to a stop in a nearby field by some distance.
“We gained access to the driver through the roof using heavy lifting equipment from a heavy rescue pump. This allowed us to release the casualty quickly and safely with the assistance of paramedics.”
