A worried mum had to call in firefighters after her toddler son got a plastic potty stuck on his head.

The incident happened at Braithwaite Walk, Keighley, at around 11.30 am yesterday and family members initially tried using a hacksaw to cut through the plastic but were unable to do so.

Firefighters tried to free the potty, but it had become stuck over the boy’s ears and they eventually used 'pin snip' tools to cut it away.

A West Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service spokesman said: “We were unable to get it past his ears, he was a bit distressed but was ok when we had cut the potty away.”
