A spokesperson for Staffordshire Fire and Rescue Service said: "It was a low-speed collision involving two cars. A female was released because she had back injuries – they took the roof off to get her out and left her in the care of an ambulance."

The service described it as a 'complicated rescue' on Twitter – and praised the work of the emergency service.

Staffordshire Fire and Rescue Service tweeted: "A complicated rescue due to previous injuries. Fantastic joint working by Staffordshire Police, West Midlands Ambulance Service and Staffordshire Fire and Rescue Service.

"Please take care on the roads they're a bit greasy."
