The driver had been travelling at the normal speed limit when the vehicle hit some standing water on the road and aquaplaned, leaving the carriageway and ultimately rolling a number of times.

A spokesman for the fire service said: “Although the damage to the vehicle was significant the driver, who was wearing a seatbelt, suffered only minor injuries.

“We are entering the annual period of inclement weather and drivers are reminded to set their speed according to road conditions, whether extremely wet or cold.”

“Please drive safely.”
