The driver had a "lucky" escape and managed to exit the vehicle before emergency services arrived and avoided injury.

Firefighter Mat Barlow said: "Roads are extremely slippery at the moment, with heavy frosts at night, and roads staying wet and slippery during the day. Please take extra care whilst driving, and allow extra time for your journey, and to give you time to de-ice your car properly."
