A CAR has overturned in an accident near Brading this morning (Tuesday).

Isle of Wight ambulance service and police were called to the scene shortly before 8am.

A 26-year-old woman was taken to St Mary's Hospital suffering from suspected neck injuries.

The woman was treated for whiplash and has since been released from hospital.

"In particular there were three gentlemen who ran down and helped her from the car.

"My wife and I just want to say a big thank you to them all."
