A man was cut from his car after he lost control of his vehicle near the Liverpool Arms, Baldrine, this afternoon.

Douglas firefighters were called to the incident at about 5pm.

The vehicle had left the road and was on its side in a field opposite the pub

Paramedics assessed the casualty and police officers shut the road and redirected traffic.

A fire service spokesman said: ‘The extrication was carried out using well-practised techniques working closely with the paramedics.

‘Although the position of the vehicle did present challenges to the rescue services the extrication was carried out efficiently with all services working together.

‘This team approach led to the casualty being transferred to the waiting ambulance approximately 20 minutes after the arrival of fire and rescue personnel, an excellent performance by all concerned.’

The condition of the man is not known at this time.
