Two people were taken to hospital after a car hit a garden wall on Bank Holiday Monday.

The East Anglian Air Ambulance, two ambulances and a rapid response vehicle rushed to the scene in Lovell Road, Bedford just after 9pm.

Firefighters were called but were not required as no-one was trapped inside the vehicle but the crew did help paramedics to treat two adult casualties.

One had suffered a leg injury and the other had a wrist injury. Both were taken to Bedford Hospital for further care.

On Saturday night (August 29), just after 9pm, firefighters were called to a farm vehicle fire at Souldrop, West Wood, off the A6.

When they arrived they found a fire involving a mobile compressor and 10sq metres of stubble alight.

The compressor was moved to a nearby hard standing and firefighters used a hose to extinguish the flames and a thermal imaging camera to make sure the fire was completely out. They left the scene just before 10pm.

A combine harvester went up in flames at Crown Farm, Moor Road, Little Staughton on Friday afternoon (August 28).

Firefighters from Bedford, supported by colleagues from St Neots, were called out just after 1.30pm.

They used breathing apparatus, two fire hoses and a covering jet to fight the fire.

There were no casualties and the fire was logged as accidental.
