FIREFIGHTERS returning from a call were today on hand to help with an emergency on their own doorstep.

A crew from Princes Street fire station discovered a two vehicle car crash outside the station at about 2.30am.

The crew had just returned after being called out to deal with water overflowing at a house in St John's Road, Ipswich.

They arrived back at the station to see the aftermath of a crash at the traffic lights at Chancery Road and Princes Street.

They immediately helped the victims of the crash and alerted the ambulance service to the situation.

Two women were injured in the smash and were taken to hospital with neck injuries.

Sub Officer Steve Rhind was part of the Red Watch crew who helped at the scene.

He said: "We were coming back from another call and saw some people hanging around a car so we went over to help. There was a girl laying on the floor, I think she was ill or might have fainted."

Three people were involved in the crash, two women in their 20s and a man of the same age.

The male was driving a Vauxhall and the women were in a Ford. The man is not believed to have suffered any injuries in the incident.
