FIREFIGHTERS had to cut a driver out of a car after they crashed into a tree. 

In the early hours of Sunday morning three fire engines full of crews from Hook Norton, Charlbury, and Kidlington responded to a 999 call of a crash near Chastleton - a village in the Cotswolds. 

When they arrived they were faced with a smashed-up car that had crashed head-on with a tree.

The driver was stuck inside with very serious injuries and had to be freed by firefighters who cut the car apart. 

Paramedics took over and the driver was taken to hospital.

Taking to Facebook, the team said: "Please be aware of your speed and the road conditions."
