An elderly woman was rescued by Doncaster firefighters after a wheelie bin fell on her last night.

She is believed to have been placing the green bin outside her home in Goodison Boulevard, Cantley, around 10.15pm when it toppled over on to her.

Her daughter was unable to move the bin because it was heavy with garden soil and waste so she called for the fire brigade.

The crew quickly lifted it off her and gave her first aid but she did not need hospital treatment.
