Road Traffic Collision – A141 (Rings End)
Throughout Storm Doris, multiple calls were coming in for our team. The severity of incidents that our team are deal with ranges throughout the year, but this storm brought multiple serious incidents in one single day. Our call handlers received a call from Cambridgeshire Fire and Rescue Service alongside Cambridgeshire Police, reporting a serious RTC involving two HGV’s that have overturned into a field of horses. With both Police and Fire requesting our assistance, our team were tasked to attend and deal with the animals on site. The call was reported to our call handlers as an animal entrapment, but upon arrival, we soon found out that thankfully, no animals were trapped beneath and all were accounted for. Our team set to work to ensure the animals were dealt with and secured whilst the emergency services were on scene seeing to both drivers. This allowed for a quick and successful rescue for everyone involved and thankfully, no one was hurt!

Accidents like this were happening all across the county and we always urge people to keep their animals safe and secured throughout the duration of any storm. Our team regularly assist Emergency Services with various cases and remain on-call to assist with any further cases.
