A pregnant woman had to be cut out of her car yesterday, Thursday, after crashing into a tree and ending up in a ditch.

Fire crews from Berkhamsted and Hemel Hempstead were called to the junction between Pouchen End Lane and London Road in Bourne End at 12.35pm, cutting the roof off the blue Renault Clio to free the woman and two other female passengers.

Paramedics were also called to the scene where they treated the woman, who is believed to be five months pregnant, for pains in her ribs before taking her to Watford General Hospital.

The scene was cleared at 2.15pm, and none of the women involved in the accident are believed to have suffered any life-threatening injuries.
