By KentOnline reporter

A young girl was cut free from a car by firefighters after a crash in Ivychurch last night.

Firefighters were called to New Church Lane at 8.24pm, to find the teenage girl - injured in a one-car crash - had walked to another car while waiting for an ambulance to arrive.

Paramedics suspected she was suffering from spinal injuries, so asked for the girl to be removed.
