FIREFIGHTERS had to rescue a 10-year-old boy after he became stuck in a type of playground equipment.

A crew from Fareham were called to Saffron Way in Whiteley after the boy had become stuck in a tube at 7.13pm yesterday.

Firefighters had to use equipment to cut the plastic tube open to allow the boy to escape.

He had been stuck for around 15 minutes before the firefighters arrived at the scene.
