Police say a driver somehow walking away unscathed after flipping his car into a ditch on a Northamptonshire country lane.

Officers came across the upside-down people carrier between Mears Ashby and Wilby, near Wellingborough, at around 6.30pm on Saturday.

They revealed the male driver was "absolutely fine" — although the same could not be said for the vehicle, which wound up on its roof in a ditch.
