FOUR passengers of a car that flipped onto its roof last night 'were extremely fortunate not to have been severely injured', firefighters said.

Bicester and Slade Park crews attended the crash near to Piddington and Brill, just south of Bicester, shortly after midnight.

The fire service said passengers in the vehicle were fortunate to get out without serious injuries as some of them were not wearing seatbelts.

Thames Valley Police dealt with the removal of the car and the occupants were checked and some taken to hospital by South Central Ambulance Service.
