FIRE crews were called out on Wednesday afternoon to rescue a man trapped underneath a fallen tree.

Fire fighters from Barnstaple and Braunton arrived at the scene in Chivenor at around 2.15pm and found the man trapped under a large branch.

They used small tools, lifting equipment and airbags to life the branch and release the man, who was then taken to hospital by ambulance.
