A car has careered down a fifteen metre bank near Newquay.

Eighteen firefighters battled to cut one person free at Rejerrah during Monday night's storms.

Both those inside have been treated by paramedics.

Cornwall Fire Service says only one vehicle was involved in the crash at the bottom of the hill in Rejerrah.

It scrambled twelve crew from Newquay and another six aboard Camborne's rescue tender.

A spokesperson said: "The vehicle involved had come off the carriage way and rolled down a steep fifteen metre embankment. On fire crews arrival one casualty remained trapped in the vehicle, a second casualty was in the care of Ambulance paramedics.

"Crews used lines to stabilise the vehicle and two sets of crash rescue equipment to cut the casualty free. Once the casualty was released they were placed in the care of paramedics and crews made the scene safe."
