AN ELDERLY woman was rescued from her car after she left the road and crashed into a ditch on Saturday (January 28) near Hilton.

Fire crews from Huntingdon and Papworth were called to the B1040 between Hilton and the A14 at 7.28pm, after a woman, in her 60s, was trapped in her car when it left the road. They released the woman, who didn't have any serious injuries, before she was taken to Hinchingbrooke Hospital.

Firefighters were back at the same road at 7.48am today to release a 25-year-old woman who was also trapped in her car after a crash. The woman was taken to Hinchingbrooke Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Arsonists torched netting in the astro-turf playground at the Ernulf Academy, in Barford Road, Eynesbury, on Saturday night. Firefighters from St Neots arrived at 7.25pm and extinguished the fire.

A deliberate fire affecting a large pile of furnishings, some cut trees and fencing, was also started behind Saunders Close, in Huntingdon, yesterday (Sunday) just after 9pm.

Earlier in the day, firefighters from Huntingdon were called to a fire at Hinchingbrooke Country Park at 3.15pm where a fire had started in a defective log burner.
