However, when they arrived they discovered the car had not rolled and the occupants had been able to get out safely, so fire crews secured the vehicle and left the occupants in the care of the ambulance service.

A police spokeswoman said there had been no serious injuries suffered. Paramedics checked the people involved at the scene and there was no need for further treatment at hospital.

The crash happened at about 9.15am and traffic was disrupted for a time.

It was slow around the junction with the B1080 and B1456 main road along the peninsula but has now cleared and conditions are normal again.
