Devon and Somerset Fire and Rescue Service crews from Ivybridge and Ashburton attended to cut a driver from a car following an accident. 

Fire crews were called on Wednesday, 27 October, to a crash in the South Brent area. 

A spokesperson for DSFRS said: "On arrival crews found one adult trapped within the vehicle. Using hydraulic tools, firefighters initially removed the driver side door allowing better access for paramedics to treat the casualty.

"They then removed the rear door and post between them. Finally they had to force the dashboard away from the driver’s entrapped feet in a technique called a 'dashboard lift', releasing the casualty to be treated by the ambulance crews."
