This was a very unusual rescue and they all did a good job in difficult circumstances. I would like to praise the lorry driver for spotting the car and calling 999, if he hadn’t stopped for a look then the man would have been in there even longer and it might have been a different outcome. Our firefighters managed to get into the car and provided an initial medical response until the ambulance teams quickly took over. All the emergency services at the scene worked as a team to achieve this rescue."

A council in Kent is thought to be the first in the country to offer bailout loans to private tenants who can't pay their rent. Ashford Council says it had to act after seeing a 20 per cent rise in evictions.
