Teenager rescued from baby swing

A teenage girl had to be rescued by firefighters after getting stuck in a baby's swing after "a lark" on a Lancashire seafront. The crew from Morecambe fire station were called to Marine Drive Central in Morecambe at 9pm on Tuesday after friends of the 14-year-old phoned for help.

Watch manager Tim Morrell, of the resort's station, said the girl was "quite embarrassed" at the incident which happened at a children's play area on the promenade.

He said: "She had been playing around on the swing and slipped right down into it and then realised she could not get herself out of it.

"We just clipped her out and let her go on her way. I do not know how long she had been stuck there but she seemed pretty relieved to get out."
