FIREFIGHTERS last night freed an elderly lady from a lift at Queen Alexandra Hospital.

The patient, who was with an ambulance crew, became stuck in the faulty lift at the Cosham hospital when the doors would not open, at around 12.30am.

Two fire crews from Cosham Fire Station were sent and were able to free the elderly woman and the crew.
