An avid Christmas fan got into some trouble whilst putting Christmas lights up at the weekend.

Crews from Weymouth Fire Station were alerted to a man who became stuck as he tried to decorate his house using a cherry picker.

Officers from the Technical Rescue and Retained team rescued the 'very chilly' man from the failed elevated platform.

The man was using the picker to help him put up the decorations before it stopped working.

His rescuers joked, saying "hopefully he is somewhere enjoying a warm drink".
