A FIRE and rescue crew from Bradford on Avon helped to free a toddler who got his foot stuck in a town centre drain on Tuesday September 3.

They were called out at 4.48pm to assist the boy and his mother in St Margaret's Street, Bradford on Avon, after he accidentally slipped his foot into a rainwater drain near Westbury Gardens.

A Dorset & Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Service spokeswoman said the crew took about 25 minutes to free the boy's foot using small tools.
