But when they arrived, it was discovered steam was coming the radiator.

A spokesman for Lancashire Fire and Rescue Service said: “Somebody went to hospital in an ambulance.

“The airbags in the car had been deployed.”

It is not thought the motorist suffered serious injuries.

Sorry comment nothing to with this story but I am seething that I cannot comment on the story:
#Fury over 'offensive' 'Pakistani only' to let sign in Nelson#
When the English chippy in Padiham story was shown comments were allowed. The LT stinks. It is full of double standards and censorship.
All you do is pander to immigrants and foreigners. Call me racist (which I am not) or what ever you want but believe me all you are doing is putting a lid on an ever increasing pressure cooker which will not hold for ever.
You serve only the minorities and that is not good enough!
