Family cut from crushed car


A mother and her two children had to be cut from their car in Jersey this morning, after a tree fell on them during the school run.

It happened just before 08:15 on La Rue de la Retraite in St.Saviour, and involved three cars, closing the road for several hours.

Rescue teams had to use hand saws, as well as battery-operated power tools to remove sections of the tree, and free the family, who fortunately weren't injured - they were all checked by paramedics at the scene.

The Fire Service says the tree was blown down by this morning's strong winds. 

Officials opened the road again just before lunchtime.
