A woman in her 70s was freed from her car after driving through a fence in Broad Oak on Sunday night (June 26).

Two East Sussex Fire and Rescue Service appliances from Rye and Broad Oak were sent to Chitcombe Road following reports of a crash at around 8.50pm.

A car had crashed into a hedge, an electricity pole and a fence and the driver was trapped in the wreckage so firefighters cut her free.

Paramedics checked over the woman at the scene but she did not need hospital treatment.

UK Power Networks attended to ensure the pole was safe.
