A man had to be cut free after getting trapped in a crash on the A1112.

About 15 firefighters, two fire engines and a rescue unit were called to Whalebone Lane North near the junction with the Moby Dick roundabout at 11.01am today after the smash between two cars and a van.

A London Fire Brigade spokeswoman, confirming the incident, said: “One man was trapped and released by firefighters.

“He was taken to hospital by paramedics and another man was treated at the scene.”

The road was closed for a short time while emergency services were there but it has since reopened in both directions.

Fire crews came from Wennington, Dagenham and East Ham.

A Met Police spokeswoman said there have been no arrests.

The incident was over by 11.44am.
