BARNSLEY fire crews had to cut a man free from his car following an accident in Thurnscoe last night (Wednesday, October 26).

The man - in his late 20s - was involved in the collision on Station Road . Two fire engines from Penistone and Dearne stations were called and used cutting equipment to remove the roof of his car to rescue him from the wreckage.

Two men had already been taken to hospital by ambulance before fire crews arrived.
