TWO women were left trapped and injured after a road collision.
The collision happened on the A390 at Lumburn, near Tavistock, at around 9am on Saturday morning.
On arrival fire crews discovered a road traffic collision with two people still trapped inside a vehicle.
The collision was between a car with a trailer and dumper truck.
Two women were released from the wreckage using hydraulic rescue equipment and were taken to hospital in an ambulance.
Approximately 20 litres of diesel was spilled during the collision, which was later cleared by fire crews.
A SPONSORED walk raised £700 to be split between two local causes.
The 1st Ivybridge Scouts and the Friends of Beaconville Nursing Home will share the cash.
The walk gave Morag Rowse, the activities organiser at Beaconville the chance to dress up in her favourite role, the Pink Cowboy Fairy with Attitude.
Morag said: "We got some very strange looks but it certainly got people's attention, although I'm not sure I would want to dress like this all the time."
A 71-YEAR-OLD man is due to finish a 291-mile hike for charity this week.
Terry Bumford is set to finish his mammoth walk tomorrow at the Cremyll Ferry in Stonehouse. He set out on the venture on July 22 from Welcombe Mouth, north of Bude and has walked 291 miles around the Cornwall coast.
Mr Bumford is a family friend of three-year Henry Hallam who has neuroblastoma and wants to help them in raising their £500,000 target.
He has spent most of the walk on his own, however he has been joined by friends and family at different points and has always had a support vehicle with him.
