Firefighters have warned motorists to make sure their windscreens are fully cleared in the mornings, after a car flipped onto its roof in a crash.

A car crashed on the A3030 near Alweston at about 8.45am yesterday morning. One crew from Sherborne fire station was sent to make the scene safe.

When firefighters arrived, one person was out of the vehicle already and was checked over by ambulance paramedics.

The teams used environmental pads to prevent any fluids entering the drains.

A spokesman for the fire service said: "With the cold mornings please ensure you leave extra time for your journeys and ensure your windscreen is fully cleared."
