Toddler released from toilet seat

Firefighters have carried out an unusual rescue- releasing a toddler with a toilet seat stuck on his head!

Luca, aged 4, arrived at Tankersley fire station with mum Nicola in a bit of a pickle at around 1.30pm on Monday afternoon.

Firefighters used cutters to snip the plastic seat free and young Luca was none the worse for his ordeal.

Firefighter Dave Rogers, said: “This was definitely one of our more unusual incidents, but we were more than happy to help. Needless to say, he was one very relieved lad when the seat finally came off!”
