FIREFIGHTERS from Buckfastleigh have posted dramatic pictures of a car on its side after they helped a man escape uninjured.

They said on their Facebook page last night, Sunday: ‘We were called to the Ermington area to assist our colleagues from Ivybridge Fire Station and Greenbank fire station to a road traffic collision involving a single vehicle on its side in a precarious position.

‘We were called for to provide specialist V-struts that can be used to stabilise a vehicle on its side.

‘The driver was assisted by firefighters out of the vehicle uninjured and given a precautionary check by the Devon BASICS doctor and ambulance crew on scene.’
