Schoolboy gets trapped in drain

A schoolboy fell down a drain and trapped his leg.

The 12-year-old boy required help from firefighters in Peterborough, Cambridgeshire, after he was spotted stuck in the drain by Nadine Jones, who called 999 after seeing him in trouble.

She said: "A child fell into the drain and became stuck.

"The drain cover was a loose, plastic temporary one, rather than a metal one, as works had been taking place.

"You could not see the top of his head. I think the drain was about eight ft deep."
