FIRE services were called to a number of incidents over the weekend - including a crash which resulted in two cars being completely destroyed by fire.

The first of the incidents was just after 9pm on Friday May 10.

Malton and Pickering fire crews responded to a single car collision on the A64 near Malton, which saw the car end up on its roof.

The driver was out of the car when crews got there but required first aid from the firemen prior to the ambulance's arrival.

The next day, at around 1.12pm on Upper Carr Lane south of Pickering, two cars with an occupant in each collided.

Malton and Pickering fire crews attended the scene. One man had to be cut free from his car by fire crews and was transported to hospital for a precautionary check up.

Later that afternoon, at 7.55pm on the A169 Blue Bank not far from Goathland, there was a two-vehicle crash that subsequently caused both vehicles to catch fire.

Appliances from Whitby and Lythe - along with a volunteer crew from Goathland - went to the scene.

Both male drivers of the vehicles were out on arrival and taken to hospital via road ambulance.

Crews extinguished the fires but North Yorkshire Fire & Rescue service said that both vehicles suffered 100 per cent fire damage.
