Contingency crews had a busy night across South Yorkshire – as crews continued their 24-hour walkout in a row over pensions.

Crews freed a woman who was trapped in a car following a crash on the A628 in Flouch, Barnsley, at around 7pm.

They were also called to three other collisions in Barnby Dun, Birdwell and Askern, but no action was needed by firefighters.

During the night, they also attended a car fire on Pollard Crescent, Parson Cross, helped a person locked in a bathroom on Renishaw Avenue, Broom, and two children locked in a bathroom in Highgate Court, Goldthorpe. Crews were also called to an ambulance fire on Weedon Street, Brightside, and a bin fire in a garden on Hastings Street, Grimethorpe.

Three people were treated for smoke inhalation after a bedroom fire in Michael Road, Lundwood, Barnsley.

The strike ended at 9am yesterday.
