Firefighters were called out to a car that crashed into a tree in Wesham amid fears there was someone trapped inside.

A crew was despatched at around 6.20am on Saturday to the collision on Weeton Road.

Lancashire Fire and Rescue said the person got out safely before they arrived.

A spokesman added: “The initial 999 call suggested someone may be trapped in the car but they had got out prior to arrival of firefighters, who made sure there were no remaining hazards in respect of fire, leaking fuel or oil, or debris.”
