A man had to be cut free by firefighters after his car smashed into a lamp post in Morecambe.

Two crews from Lancaster and Morecambe raced to the scene in Oxcliffe Road at breakfast-time today after reports the driver was trapped and the vehicle was on fire.

“When they reached the casualty there was no blaze, but we had to use hydraulic gear to get him out,” said a fire brigade spokesman.

“He was taken to hospital by ambulance, although we don’t know how serious his injuries are.”

The fire service contacted council officials to inspect the lamp post.
