A girl of 12 had to be freed by firefighters after becoming trapped in a see-saw.

Crews were called to a children’s playground in Mayfield Lane, St Leonards at around 2.15pm on Sunday.

An East Sussex Fire and Rescue Service spokesman said: “The girl called 999 to say her leg was trapped in the seat and our crews went along and were able to get her out.”

The brigade said the girl was too big for the see-saw.
