A boy was rescued by firefighters after getting his knee trapped in the fork of a tree.

The four-year-old was playing outside Brockhurst Infant School, Avery Lane, Gosport, when he got into difficulty at 3.20pm yesterday.

Firefighter crews from Gosport used cutters to spread the trunk, which enabled a school teacher to hoist the youngster out.
