It sounds like something from a children’s comic.

But Bridlington firefighters were needed to rescue a youngster who was stuck up a tree in Bridlington last night.

The crew were called to Queensgate just after 7pm and used a short ladder to help the child get down.

Earlier in the day, they were needed to remove the top of a lamppost which was hanging dangerously by an electric cable in strong winds on Queen Street.
