FIRE fighters were called to a property in Winton this morning after a man got his arm stuck in a letterbox.

A call was made to the fire service at 1.28am with reports of the incident on Pine Road, which connects Wimborne Road and Charminster Avenue.

One crew from Redhill attended and worked to release the man’s hand and arm before they were able to leave the scene at 1.44am.

A spokesperson for Dorset Police confirmed that they received a call in relation to the incident, but added that it was dealt with exclusively by fire fighters.
