Firefighters got a bit of a shock when midway through training they heard an almighty bang and saw two cars had crashed just outside their station.

Nobody was seriously injured in the accident, which happened at around 9.50pm last night at the junction of Gravesend Road and Brompton Farm Road in Strood.

One of the firefighters on duty said: “There we were doing a lecture on collapsed buildings when suddenly there was this almighty bang.

“We looked out the window and saw the crash so got out there to help.

“Nobody was trapped but we delivered basic first aid before ambulance and police arrived.”

A silver saloon car driven by a woman with her son as a passenger was completely crumpled at the front and the air bags had gone off.

A Porsche with a male driver and male passenger was also damaged.
