Two trapped after van flipped sideways

TWO people were trapped inside a van that flipped sideways at a motorway service station in the early hours of this morning (Fri).

Fire crews were called to rescue a man and a woman, both in their 50s, from an overturned van at Gordano services on the M5.

It had flipped sideways after hitting a kerb and meant the passengers could not get out.

Fire crews from Avon and Somerset Fire and Rescue service were called to the incident at 12.30am and put a ladder into the van to enable them to climb out.

Neither were hurt.
