Fire crew’s jewel of a rescue job

Have your say

A Thetford fire crew did an unusual ‘rescue’ last Thursday to free a young man from his earring.

The man had been unable to get the loop earring undone so he went to the fire station for help.

A fire service spokesman said: “They got it off without cutting it, for which he was grateful. It’s one of those slightly unusual jobs that only takes a few minutes.”
