One fire engine from Worthing and the Heavy Rescue Tender attended the scene, where they found a vehicle had rolled into a trench dug by utilities providers.

“Working closely with engineers from UK Power Networks and Southern Gas to ensure the scene was safe, firefighters used the crane on the Heavy Rescue Tender to lift the vehicle back onto the road,” the spokesman said.
