Firefighters and paramedics worked side-by-side to safely release a woman from an overturned car in Glasgow.

Scottish Fire and Rescue Service crews used cutters to detach a door from the upside-down vehicle and create the space needed to free the motorist.

The incident happened on Dumbarton Road in the city’s west end shortly before 9:30pm on Monday 28 March.

Appliances from Yorkhill and Maryhill community fire stations were sent in response to a call from ambulance control and firefighters reached the scene five minutes later.

After being released from the car the casualty was taken to the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital for a precautionary check-up.
