EMERGENCY crews rescued two people trapped in an overturned car on a major road in Oxfordshire.

A driver and a passenger were found stuck in a vehicle that had crashed on Warwick Road, near Banbury, on Wednesday morning.

When firefighters from Banbury arrived at the scene they found a car had left the road and ended up on its side.

The crews stabilised the vehicle and then freed the occupants, who only had minor injuries as they were wearing seatbelts.

Oxfordshire Fire and Rescue Services took the opportunity and warned drivers that as the season changes, road conditions will become more difficult.
