HEREFORDSHIRE firefighters have been called to a crash between a car and a van, with one person trapped.

Crews from Leominster and Shropshire fire stations were called to the scene at 10.34am.

The crash involved a van and a car in Overton Road, Ludlow.

One person was released from the van by firefighters.

The casuality is now in the care of the ambulance service. 


The crews at Leominster and Tenbury fire stations are both retained – this means they are on-call and live and/or work locally and respond to calls when they are needed.

The fire services said full training, uniform and personal development is provided and there are many opportunities to gain additional skills and qualifications that will be of use outside the fire service.

There are also weekly training sessions, usually held on a weekday evening.

Hereford Fire Station is the only station in the county to be staffed by “wholetime” crews.
