A driver had to be released from a dumper truck which overturned and fell into a trench in Foundry Way, March, yesterday.

The East Anglian Air Ambulance flew to the scene and worked with other emergency services to free the man, who was trapped in the truck by his arm.

The driver, who sustained arm injuries, was taken to Addenbrooke’s Hospital.

A Cambs Fire spokesman said: “A man was trapped under a dumper track. We were called at 12.55pm and sent two crews, one from Wisbech and one from March, to Foundry Way.

“The truck had gone down the embankment. We worked closely with paramedics to stabilise the vehicle then released the man, before returning to our stations by 2.20pm.”
