The roof of a car had to be cut off to free a woman inside after it crashed with a fire service response vehicle in Wolverhampton.

This car was involved in a crash at the junction of Stafford Street and the ring road

The woman was taken to hospital but her injuries were not thought to be serious, according to West Midlands Fire Service.

The crash happened at the junction where the A449 Stafford Street meets the ring road at 4.55pm today and led to delays throughout rush hour.

The back of the fire service vehicle and the front of the white car were both damaged.

The Stafford Street lane going southbound into the city centre was shut off for about an hour and a half after the crash, with traffic flowing through the other lanes.
