A PENSIONER was rescued from her car after it fell on to its side in Chineham.

Four crews from Basingstoke and Rushmoor fire stations went to the aid of the 72-year-old woman, who crashed near a house in Saffron Close at around 1pm today.

Firefighters believe the car hit a curb at low speed and toppled on to its side.

The woman was freed after firefighters cut out a panoramic sunroof from her car.
