Toddler locks Plymouth mother in cupboard
A mother had to be rescued by fire crews after her one-year-old toddler locked her in a cupboard.
The woman's cries for help were heard by a postman, who called the emergency services.
Devon and Somerset Fire and Rescue Service said it used a ladder to get into the property in Radford Park Drive, Plymstock, Devon.
The woman was then released from the under-stairs cupboard and reunited with her child after the 15-minute ordeal.
A fire spokesman said: "A fire appliance was mobilised from Plymstock fire station and, on arrival, confirmed there was an adult locked in the under stairs cupboard as well as a one-year-old child locked in the property.
"Crews used small tools and a triple extension ladder to gain access and release the adult from the cupboard."
