A man escaped with a just a cut to his finger after his car crashed into a tree near Kidderminster.

The smash happened around a mile from Shatterford, on the A442 Bridgnorth Road, at around 4.15pm yesterday.

Meanwhile, firefighters were called in to rescue a car that rolled down  an embankment onto a railway line.

The silver Vauxhall Astra crashed through a fence and ended up on the tracks at Mill Street in Walsall.
