A woman was taken to hospital after she was cut loose from an overturned vehicle this morning (Friday).

The motorist, who was in her 50s, had to be cut free by firefighters on Bromley Lane, Much Hadham, after the Red Landrover Discovery she was driving was found overturned in a ditch shortly before 8am.

Hertfordshire Fire and Rescue Service was called and four engines from Bishop’s Stortford, Much Hadham and Buntingford attended the incident, as well as Hertfordshire Constabulary and an ambulance and officer from East England Ambulance Service (EEAST).

The woman had not sustained any serious injuries, a spokesman for EEAST said, but was taken to Princess Alexandra Hospital (PAH) as a precaution.

Police also confirmed that the road was closed while the vehicle was recovered, and reopened at 10am.
