Derby's Ascot Drive firefighters called to the rescue - to remove icing nozzle from woman's finger
FIREFIGHTERS had to come to the rescue of an unusual visitor at their station - when a woman arrived with an icing nozzle stuck to the end of her finger.
It took a hacksaw to remove the piece of kitchen equipment from her hand, after she showed up at Derby's Ascot Drive station at about 2.40pm on Tuesday.
A spokeswoman for Derbyshire Fire and Rescue Service said: "The lady told the firefighters she had been cleaning the nozzle when it became stuck.
"They were able to remove it with a hacksaw and she did not need to go to hospital."
