FIREFIGHTERS freed two women who were trapped in a car after it left a road and ended up upside down in a ditch.

Emergency services were called to the crash, involving one car- a black Seat Ibiza - in Burniston Road, Scarborough, at about 7.40pm on Sunday.

A spokesperson for North Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service said crews from Scarborough “released two people who were trapped inside before placing them in the care of paramedics.”

A North Yorkshire Police spokesperson added that the two women were checked over by paramedics, but “did not require hospital treatment.”
