A KOSHER butcher shop's van driver had to be cut free from his van by firemen after he collided with another vehicle last week.

The H Gross and Son employee collided with another van on the corner of Princess Park Road and Golders Green Road, close to the store, at 10.50am on Wednesday.

After he complained of back pains, medics were cautious not to move him and Hendon fire service was called to cut him out. He was taken to the Royal Free hospital while the other driver escaped unhurt.

This week the driver did not want to comment, but was back at work with bruising.

Asher Singer of Kay's Delicatessen, opposite where the crash occurred, said: "It was a very small crash, but they were worried about moving him from his position after he had complained of back pains.
