Boy Trapped Hand in Plughole
Toddler Harry Minshull took the plunge and poked his fingers into a plughole - only to find they were stuck.
Harry, who is just 16 months old, was being bathed at his grandparents' home in Royton, Oldham, when he pushed his fingers into the hole in the kitchen sink.
Grandparents John and Anthea struggled to free the youngster before dad Darren, a joiner, dismantled the waste section to try to free his son.
But the metal section of the plug still stuck around Harry's swollen thumb and finger, so Darren, 31, was forced to call in the fire brigade.
Four firefighters used metal cutters to free Harry, who had been stuck for more than an hour. Darren said: "We tried washing-up liquid but had to call the Fire Brigade.
"They used 12in snippers to cut him free. Harry cried a bit but he was okay afterwards."
