Lincolnshire Police received a call at 1.39am last night to a report that a car had gone into the central reservation on the A17 in East Heckington.

Jake had been travelling home after presenting the FA Cup tie between Blackburn and Newcastle.

Two people came away with minor injuries, police said.

“Rather eventful journey from Blackburn last night,” he wrote online. “Thankfully only a few bumps and bruises.

“I just want to call out Lincolnshire Police, the brilliant local fire service and the lovely family in East Heckington who got the kettle on. All great, kind folk. Thanks x.”
