Bizarre rescue as firefighters use their cherry picker to rescue man stuck in another one in Cofton Hackett

FIREFIGHTERS had a strange rescue to carry out in Cofton Hackett yesterday when a workman became stuck in the air among the treetops in a cherry picker.

The crews had to use their ‘aerial ladder platform’ (cherry picker) to get to him and bring him safely down.

Crews from Worcester and Redditch were involved in the rescue.
