A 92-year-old woman was rescued by firefighters after she got her head stuck in a frame.

She had fallen to the floor and fallen into a spinning frame, similar to a walking frame on a turntable, at her home off High Street, Cosham.

Red watch manager Ian Sales said: ‘We had to prise open the bars a little bit and release her head.

‘She wasn’t seriously injured. She’d fallen off a chair, and where the machine was to the side of it she fell into it.’

One appliance was out for around 20 minutes from 10.55am.
