The hapless man had attempted to scale a fence leading to the concealed rear area of a pub but got his shoe stuck on a spike.

He was forced to cry for help while dangling in mid-air until a group of regulars went to investigate.

They began filming the scene in Scotland and quizzed him on what he was up to as he begged for help.
