Garston firefighters free girl with leg trapped in Meriden play area off Garsmouth Way
Firefighters had to saw part of a metal shelter on the Meriden Estate after a young girl got her leg wedged between two posts.
Crews from Garston Fire Station were called on Monday at around 4.20pm to the play area off Garsmouth Way after the five-year-old, who was climbing on the structure, fell and became trapped by the knee.
Watch commander Andy Newman said: "She was not injured but she was well and truly trapped.
"We used a hand hacksaw to cut through the some of the bolts carefully as it was close to her leg.
"Then we managed to adjust it to get a gap and slide her leg out. She was a bit distressed but she was a brave little soldier."
The girl was checked over by paramedics after being released and had some bruising from the accident.
