A Chinese man had to have his penis removed from a spanner by dentists after getting it stuck in there for 17 hours.

The Daily Mail report on the story from China's Zhejiang Province, where the incident involving a single man aged 37 took place.

According to the Mail, doctors and fireman had attempted to free the man's member but eventually they called in dentists, who used a dental drill to end the man's agony.

The dental drill had a water cooler attached to reduce the heat involved in the operation, protecting the man from a nasty burn.

It took the dentists 30 minutes to free the man.

It remains unclear how he ended up with his penis trapped in the spanner.
