The fire brigade had to be called out to rescue a woman who was locked in a cupboard under the stairs in Plymstock - by her one-year-old child earlier today.

Emergency services were called after she managed to alert her next door neighbours in Radford Park Drive.

Crews used small tools and a triple extension ladder to gain access and release the adult from the cupboard. The mother was then reunited with her child.
