A COUNCILLOR from Ponteland is recovering after being injured in a car crash in the Manchester area.
Coun. Veronica Jones, who represents Ponteland West on Northumberland County council, was returning from visiting one of her three daughters when her Citroen car was involved in a collision with another van last Friday night.
Firefighters had to cut her from the car and she was taken to hospital with breathing difficulties, cuts and bruises.
She remained there for two nights before returning to her daughter’s home to recover.

THREE watercolour paintings donated by Queen Mary were auctioned off to raise money for a new Darby and Joan club in Hexham.
A site had already been bought, but a further £6,000 was needed to run the club for the elderly.
The auction, opened by Viscountess Allendale, saw the paintings raise over £8 for the fund.
