One Fire Engine from Dartmouth and one from Paignton, were sent to a report of a car that was stuck in a precarious position on the edge of a bank. 

On arrival crews confirmed that there was one male still in the car with his foot on the brake to stop the vehicle from tumbling down the bank. Crews used a winch and tyre blocks to recover the vehicle to a safe position, then the driver who was unharmed, was able to exit the vehicle.
