Devon and Somerset Fire & Rescue Service has come to the rescue of a three-year-old boy who got a toilet training seat stuck on his head.
One crew was called out to Richards Close in Exmouth this morning and released the child by cutting through the plastic seat with snippers.
The firefighters said the little boy, who had managed to ram the loo seat down past his ears, was a bit "perturbed" when they got there but was fine as soon as it was removed.

Would you eat this for lunch? (Don't miss our World Pasty Championships on 28 Feb!) http://t.co/3LG2u0DAMs
The head chef at the Eden Project in Cornwall has cooked up a novel way to mark the beginning of the World Pasty Championships - by creating an enormous Cornish pasty in the shape of the earth.
Tony Trenerry spent more than eight hours slaving over the colossal snack. It's 70cm in diameter, and needed an extra large oven.
He said it was the toughest, and heaviest, baking challenge of his career.
He said: "I was inspired by the amazing collection of competitive pasties at last year's World Pasty Championships and wanted to do my bit to inspire entrants to this year's competition.
"Word about the competition is spreading and, as well as local bakers, we have had interest from around the world, including enquiries from the US and Canada."
