Emergency crews were called out to help a woman who got stuck in a loft.

The woman, said to be in her 50s, became trapped in the loft of a home on Boston Road, St Annes, shortly after midday yesterday.

She had been climbing into the attic space when the ladder broke and she injured her arm.

Crews from St Annes Fire Station attended and used a ladder to bring her safely down after another person in the house was unable to help her.

A spokesman for the fire service said: “They just didn’t know who else to call.”
