Firefighters had to dig a driver out after his car ran off the road and became wedged in a ditch.

The incident was reported at 6pm last night (Monday) on Hale Road, Helpringham, where a car had ended up in a ditch, trapping the driver inside, said a fire service spokesman.

The fire crew from Billingborough dug away the surrounding embankment and released the man from the car, who was uninjured.
