Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Helping Others -

Fire­fight­ers were kept busy on Sun­day night, af­ter a car ended up in a ditch and a fire broke out in another parked on a drive­way.

A car was re­ported in a ditch in Brom­ley Green Road, Ruckinge, at around 10pm. One ap­pli­ance from Ash­ford’s Red Watch at­tended the scene.

The male driver, who sus­tained back in­juries, and a pas­sen­ger had al­ready got out of the ve­hi­cle when fire­fight­ers ar­rived.

The po­lice and am­bu­lance ser­vices were al­ready in at­ten­dance, in­clud­ing a Hazard Area Re­sponse Team made up of paramedics.

The driver was taken to the Wil­liam Har­vey Hos­pi­tal to re­ceive treat­ment.

In a sep­a­rate in­ci­dent two ap­pli­ances, one from Char­ing and another from Ald­ing­ton, were called to re­ports of a Re­nault Me­gane alight on a drive­way in Corn­wal­lis Close, Willes­bor­ough at around 10.30pm.

Crews us­ing hose reel jets worked for around 20 min­utes to ex­tin­guish the blaze, be­lieved to have been caused by an elec­tri­cal fault.
