Driver cut free from crashed car

Harefield Gazette - - NEWS -

A DRIVER had to cut free from a car af­ter a col­li­sion in Ruis­lip High Street last Wed­nes­day morn­ing (Septem­ber 2).

Po­lice were called shortly be­fore 8am by Lon­don Am­bu­lance Ser­vice to re­ports of a road traf­fic col­li­sion and two fire en­gines also at­tended. An LFB HACAN, which cam­paigns for res­i­dents un­der the Heathrow flight paths, has wel­comed cross party sup­port against a third run­way at Heathrow.

The Coali­tion Against Heathrow Ex­pan­sion in­cludes the Mayor of Lon­don, Con­ser­va­tive MPs Zac Gold­smith, Adam Afriyie and Ta­nia Mathias, Labour MPs John McDon­nell, Ruth Cad­bury, Andy Slaugh­ter and Kate Hoey as well as five coun­cils and spokesman said: “We were called at 8am to Ruis­lip High Street and we were there un­til 8.40am.

“Fire­fight­ers cut the roof off one of the cars to get the driver out of one of the ve­hi­cles, who was re­moved by fire­fight­ers and the Lon­don Am­bu­lance Ser­vice safely from the ve­hi­cle and taken cam­paign groups in­clud­ing Green­peace and Friends of the Earth.

The cam­paign will be de­liv­er­ing over 1.6m fly­ers across Lon­don and the South East to peo­ple who could be im­pacted by a third run­way.

It is also or­gan­is­ing a mass rally in Cen­tral Lon­don on Oc­to­ber 10.

HACAN Chair John Stewart, who will be fronting the rally, said, “This leaflet drop and rally is the big­gest ef­fort ever by op­po­nents of to hos­pi­tal.”

Two fire en­gines, from Ruis­lip and from Har­row, as well as a fire res­cue unit from Wem­b­ley at­tended.

A Metropoli­tan Po­lice spokesman said: “No one was se­ri­ously in­jured with no in­juries be­ing treated as life-threat­en­ing or lifechang­ing.” No ar­rests were made. Heathrow ex­pan­sion.

“It shows that, de­spite the rec­om­men­da­tion of the Air­ports Com­mis­sion that a third run­way goes ahead, we are con­fi­dent that we can bury the pro­posal once and for all.”

Later this the Gov­ern­ment will de­cide whether to en­dorse the Air­ports Com­mis­sion’s rec­om­men­da­tion of a third run­way or to cre­ate a sec­ond run­way at ri­val air­port Gatwick.
