A TODDLER who trapped his head in a banister had to be released by a fire crew in Poole this morning.

The fire brigade were called just before 11am to the incident on Alexandra Road, Upper Parktsone, after reports that a two-year-old boy had his head stuck.

A spokesperson for Dorset Fire said one crew from Westbourne responded to the incident.

She added: “The two-year-old boy was unharmed though a little upset. The crew had to remove one of the spindles to release him.”
