Three women had a lucky escape from a car near Hamstead Marshall yesterday (Tues) afternoon, after it left the road and climbed an embankment and they were cut free by firefighters.

Two fire engines were called at 2.15pm from Newbury Fire Station, to Park Lane, between the A4 and Hamstead Marshall, after a Ford Fiesta, with three women inside, left the road and ended up half way up an embankment.

Red Watch crew manager, Mike Wilson, who was at the scene, said the women could not open the door, due to the angle of the car.

Firefighters stabilised the car, before cutting the driver's door off and helping the three women out and down the embankment.

Waiting paramedics checked the three women for any injuries, but none were taken to hospital.

Thames Valley Police (TVP) were also called to the incident.

Park Lane was closed for around an hour.

Firefighters left the scene after about an hour.
