No other cars are thought to have been involved.

Firefighters used hydraulic cutting gear to remove the roof of the car and free the man.

He was then handed over to paramedics and taken to King's College Hospital in London hospital with head and leg injuries.

The road was closed in the aftermath, but has now reopened.
