A woman had to be freed from a car after it smashed into a wall during the night.

Emergency services were called to Park Road, Blackpool, at around 11pm to reports a car had hit a garden wall.

Two people were out of the vehicle when the Fire Service arrived and were being tended to by paramedics, but a woman aged in her 20s was trapped in the car.

The car was on its roof and it took crews from Blackpool and South Shore around 15 minutes to free her out of the back window.

She was taken to hospital in an ambulance, and her injuries are not thought to be life-threatening.

The road was closed for about an hour.
