FIREFIGHTERS from Cosham were called to a report of a person trapped under a bridge in Hilsea yesterday.

The call was made at 4.37pm and a 15-year-old boy was said to have become stuck under the bridge, which spans Hilsea creek near the lido off London Road. Firefighters said by the time they got there the boy, who had been attempting to climb underneath the bridge, had managed a ‘self rescue’.
