Witnesses to the aftermath of the crash told how the man was able to pull himself from the heavily-damaged van and walk to a waiting ambulance.

Pictures taken at the scene show the vehicle on its side next to the telegraph pole, which was knocked to the ground.

An off-duty paramedic was among those who offered support to the driver as he remained in the vehicle.

Police, ambulance crews and firefighters were called at about 10pm, and an air ambulance landed on The Downs, off Beacon Hill.
