A 16-month-old girl has been freed by firefighters wielding an ice lolly after she got her finger stuck down a plug hole.

The girl got trapped in a bath at a house in Dartmouth Road, Paignton, Devon.

A Devon and Somerset Fire and Rescue Service spokesman said: "Crews got to work using small tools to remove the plug hole and then the finger, and a traffic light ice lolly to cool and reduce the swelling."
