Fire crews from from Dagenham and Ilford released the trapped pensioner from her overturned car within 40 minutes of receiving the call at 12.30pm.

An ambulance and single responder car, two fire engines, a fire rescue unit and police attended the scene. Traffic was cordoned off while emergency services worked on freeing the woman.
