A trapped woman had to be cut free from her car after a crash on the A61 which left her in the ditch at the side of the road.

The crash happened shortly after 12.30pm last Thursday, after two cars clipped one another near the North Rigton turn-off on the A61 Harrogate to Leeds road.

Firefighters, using specialist cutting gear, freed the woman and she was taken to hospital with shoulder injuries. Nobody else was hurt in the crash.
