A person was trapped in their vehicle after a crash involving two cars in Catsfield last night (Monday, January 16).

East Sussex Fire and Rescue Service said two people were trapped at the scene in Catsfield Road, which two fire engines from Battle and Bexhill rushed to at around 5.40pm.

However only one person was stuck so firefighters used hydraulic cutting equipment to rescue the casualty from the wreckage who was left in the care of paramedics.

Two patients, including a man aged approximately in his 70s with back pain, were assessed and treated before being taken to Conquest Hospital, according to the ambulance service.

There were delays both ways because of the accident.
