A woman and baby were rescued by firefighters after their car slid down an embankment next to Saddington Reservoir this morning. Firefighters from Wigston and the technical rescue unit from Leicester's southern station were mobilised after reports that the car had skidded down the embankment off Mowsley Road, Saddington, at 10.20am. Leicestershire Fire and Rescue Service said the woman and the baby were not physically trapped. The baby was rescued from the car shortly before 10.50pm and the woman shortly afterwards. Fire crews used a 30-metre thick rope attached to a fence and the telescopic arm of a tractor to secure the vehicle. East Midlands Ambulance Service paramedics on the scene checked over the woman and baby. A police spokeswoman said officers were called at 10.32am to a single vehicle collision on a track around the reservoir. She added that no-one was injured and no-one needed to go to hospital.
