Emergency services called to Bembridge


A collision on Forelands Road in Bembridge on Thursday evening (December
27), between an Audi A3 and a VW Golf. Led to police, fire and ambulance
crews responding to reports of people trapped in a car.

Appliances from the Isle of Wight Fire and Rescue Service from Bembridge,
Ryde and Newport hastened to the scene of the collision outside Inver House
at just after 4.35 pm. Paramedics from the Isle of Wight Ambulance Service
also attended the scene.

However, the incident wasn’t as serious as first feared and the emergency
services were soon stood down.

The damage sustained to the two vehicles was minor, and no-one is now
thought to have been seriously injured.

The collision led to the road being closed and delays for the Southern Vectis
Route 8 service, but the road has since re-opened and bus journeys are now
unaffected.
