A spokesperson said they were called at 8.17am on Wednesday (May 18) to the crash between two vehicles, with one female casualty trapped inside a van.

West Midlands Ambulance Service said one ambulance, a paramedic officer and the Midlands Air Ambulance from Cosford attended the scene.

The van driver, a woman, was assisted out of her vehicle by the fire service before being treated for injuries not believed to be serious.

She was then taken to Hereford County Hospital by land ambulance as a precaution.


But now Royal Mail has said it will be supporting any police investigation.

A Royal Mail spokesperson said: “We can confirm that one of our vehicles was involved in a road traffic incident yesterday, and that emergency services attended the scene.

“We will assist in full with any investigation that the police may undertake into this incident.”

Kington fire station said the verges on the “very narrow” country lane were overgrown, and added: “The lane is a tiny, country road and currently has lovely verges full of wildflowers etc which are no doubt keeping the local bees very happy.

“We did not want to insinuate that the roads were badly overgrown, just that while the verges are in full spring/summer mode, maybe slow down a little to allow for it.”
