FIREFIGHTERS freed a teenager trapped in her overturned car after a crash in Wigan.

When a crew from Merseyside arrived at the scene in Garswood Road, Ashton, they found the vehicle lying on its side with the 18-year-old motorist still inside. She was conscious and breathing and, once released by firemen, did not go to hospital but did receive treatment from paramedics at the scene.

The incident happened shortly after 6pm on Thursday.
