woman dialled 999 after she got trapped for 90 minutes inside a flat pack wardrobe she was assembling.

The bizarre call-out was one of dozens made to firefighters over the last 12 months.

Other unusual pleas for help include:

* A toddler who stuck his head in a toilet training seat.

* A child who trapped his finger in a plughole.

* A person who accidentally choked themselves on a dog lead.

On another occasion firefighters used hydraulic cutting equipment to release a child who was wedged in playground equipment.

A Freedom of Information Act request revealed Leicestershire Fire and Rescue Service responded to 63 oddball emergencies last year.

One woman needed rescuing after she was trapped inside a flat-pack wardrobe while she assembled it at her home.

A firefighter said: "She wasn't that unhappy as she had her cigarettes with her while she was waiting to be rescued."

A staggering 49 people also dialled 999 to have RINGS removed from their fingers.

A fire service spokesman said: "We've had some stag do's where the grooms have gone out all dressed up and wearing their fiancee's jewellery, which then hasn't come off."

On six occasions - again mainly on stag or hen parties - handcuffs have had to be cut off.

Last New Year's Eve red-faced police called 999 after a drunk man got trapped in a pair of handcuffs.

The fire service spokesman added: "We were called on New Year's Eve by the police. They had arrested a man who had had a bit to drink.

"They cuffed him but he fell over and the cuffs got wedged on and they couldn't get the key in."

One man managed to drive to the fire station despite accidentally impaling his foot with a garden fork while a husband needed rescuing after jamming his toe in his bath tap.

Neil Mayne, a firefighter for nearly 30 years, said: "You do get some strange ones.

"There are some calls with sexual connotations, which we can't really talk about.

"We often get calls to Leicester Royal Infirmary to help people who have got themselves into a tricky situation.

"Sometimes, if it's a stag do when somebody is stuck in handcuffs or chained to a phone box, then you can have a bit of banter with them.

"Otherwise, it's all done with a straight face because it's all part of the service.

"Yes, it costs money to do and yes some people think there are better things we could be spending our time on but who else are people going to call?

"Our equipment is publicly funded and we use it to help the public when they are in trouble.

"I've seen children who have been stuck in plugholes or got their heads and legs trapped in fences.

"There was one chap who impaled his foot with a garden fork - he still managed to drive to the station.

"Then there was a man who was having a bath and his wife told him not to stick his toe in the tap. Of course, he did and it got stuck.

"We've got all sorts of equipment to help free people, from the big jaws of life we use to pull mangled cars apart to smaller cutters for delicate work in sensitive areas."

"She wasn't that unhappy as she had her cigarettes with her while she was waiting to be rescued."

So by the time they go there they had a fire to put out as well!



I nearly choked on me wine at that one.
