A child was rescued from a climbing frame by firefighters in Welwyn Garden City yesterday (August 17).

Crews were called to Bessemer Road at about 4.45pm to help release the child’s leg from the playground apparatus.

The leg was quickly unstuck so the child could escape the frame.

In a separate incident, firefighters from Potters Bar and Borehamwood rushed to a flat in Morpeth Avenue, Borehamwood, at about 4.30pm.

A small kitchen fire was extinguished and the flat ventilated.
