One person has been rescued by being cut out of car after getting involved in a three-vehicle collision along the Powys border this morning (Monday, March 4).

The collision involving two cars and a lorry along the A490 between Churchstoke and Chirbury closed the road in both directions for around six hours.

The crash prompted a large emergency response from police, ambulance and fire crews from Welshpool and Montgomery after receiving the call-out at around 6.10am.

West Mercia Police said nobody was seriously injured in the crash and no arrests were made.

A picture shared by Montgomery Fire Station shows the impact of the collision which led to one of the vehicles landing on a hedge.

Firefighters helped rescue a person trapped inside one of the vehicle's by using e-draulic cutting gear before leaving the scene shortly after 8am.

A spokesperson for the fire service said: "Crews utilised e-draulic cutting equipment to extricate one casualty trapped inside one of the vehicles who was then treated by ambulance service personnel also in attendance."

At midday, the traffic monitoring system Inrix said the A490 had re-opened in both directions with traffic returning to normal after debris from the collision was cleared from Calcot Farm to the Horse and Jockey Pub.
