A woman had to be taken to hospital after firefighters and paramedics helped her out of her Croxley Green bathroom following severe back pains.

The woman, who was in her forties, had to be stretchered out of the Frankland Road house when she was physically unable to get out of her property.

A crew from Rickmansworth was called at 3.35pm and firefighters assisted paramedics with a specialist stretcher.

The woman was taken to Stoke Mandeville Hospital, in Aylesbury.
