Firefighters freed a woman after she became trapped under furniture for five hours.

Crews were called to a house on Warren Avenue in Stapleford yesterday (Thursday, March 16) at 4pm after a passer-by heard the woman shouting for help and dialled 999.

The female had fallen down the stairs and a large item of furniture had trapped her on the floor and against the front door- she had been held there for around five hours.

Firefighters used a door enforcer to gain entry to the rear of the address before freeing the female and handing her over to paramedics.
