Woman stuck in phone box dials 999

A woman trapped in a phone box was rescued by firefighters - after dialling 999 from the kiosk.

Crews rushed to Salmon Parade in Bridgwater, Somerset, after receiving a call from the woman at 7.54pm yesterday.

The "distressed" woman claimed someone had shut her inside the phone box, a spokeswoman for Devon and Somerset Fire and Rescue Service said.

" A fire appliance from Bridgwater was mobilised following a call from a woman, in distress, who was complaining of being stuck in the phone box that she was making her emergency call from," the spokeswoman said.

"Shortly after arriving the crew were able to release her easily.

"It appears she was in distress after reporting that someone had shut her inside the phone box, although this could not be verified on our arrival. Whilst a little distressed, the woman was released unharmed."
