Fire crews were called to rescue a woman who got her arm stuck in the dashboard of a car in Preston.

Firefighters went to a petrol station on Clifton Grove, off Blackpool Road, where the woman had got into difficulty, at about midnight on Sunday.

Crew Manager Rob Barker said her arm became trapped in the air vent of the car as she was trying to retrieve a credit card from inside the dashboard.

Firefighters released her arm, but no equipment was in use.
