FIREFIGHTERS had to cut two women out of a car which crashed into a car just off the A127 on Sunday afternoon.

Crews from Brentwood and Orsett were called out to the scene near West Horndon on April 27 at about 3.15pm.

It took them an hour and 15 minutes to release the females inside the vehicle.

They were then taken to Basildon Hospital for treatment with paramedics describing their injuries as "non-life threatening".
