1:21pm Thursday 5th September 2013 in News
Firefighters rescued a five-year-old girl trapped up a 25ft tree in Trowbridge last Thursday.
A triple extensionladder was used to rescue her from the tree in a copse off Lambrok Road at 6pm.
Guy Tadman, watch manager at Trowbridge Fire Station, said: “She had been up there about 20 minutes when we just pitched a ladder up and one of the lads brought her down.
“She was fine. Her mum was with her the whole time. She was just upset she wasn’t able to get down herself.”
