A spokesperson for Buckfastleigh Fire Station said: "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."
