Crews from Essex County Fire and Rescue Service have been asked to attend two rather unusual incidents today.
They were first called to Westcliff to help a three-year-old girl with a toilet training seat stuck on her head.
Leading Firefighter Ross Danes from Southend Fire Station said: "The toilet training seat was stuck over the little girl's head.
"Firefighters gently prised the training seat off over her head, she was very brave and was unharmed by her ordeal."
Shortly afterwards they were called to a nearby incident in Shoeburyness, involving a child's foot trapped in a cot.
Mr Danes said: "The four-year-old boy was in his cot when he got his foot stuck between the iron railings."
