A LORRY driver was rescued after his vehicle was wedged in a ditch on a busy roundabout.

The driver of the Royal Mail lorry came off the road at the Braywick Road/ A308 roundabout as he came from the direction of the M4 at around 5.45am this morning.

The vehicle’s cabin was wedged in and the male driver was unable to escape, forcing firefighters to use cutting equipment and a ram to remove a door and free him.

Crew manager Marcus Lewis, of white watch at the Maidenhead fire station, said: “It was quite awkward and difficult to get to him as the cabin was wedged. He looked like he had a leg injury where it had been trapped.” The driver, aged in his 50s, was treated at the scene for leg injuries by paramedics before being taken on to Wexham Park Hospital.
