A Chinese boy gave the authorities a bit of a headache when he managed to get his head firmly lodged in a stone balustrade.

Firefighters were called to the scene of the accident on the stairway of a local government building in Hezhang Country on Sunday.

The team were forced to use hydraulic pliers to expand the gap in the balustrade before they could pull him to safety.

The boy was finally released and tearfully reunited with his grandmother after being examined by doctors.
