Firemen free 30-stone drunk wedged in taxi

‘A man, who was understood to weigh around 30-stone and was believed to have been drunk, had fallen over in the vehicle and slipped between the driver’s seat and rear seat. He was wedged fast on the floor of the cab, where officers said he was being sick.

Paramedics and firefighters from nearby Whitehaven Fire Station were called out to help. A team of five firefighters took about half an hour to manhandle the man out of the vehicle.’
