Fire crew remove window to free 'trapped burglar'
A suspected burglar was left dangling today when he got stuck as he tried to climb through a window.
Firefighters had to remove the window frame at the house in east London to rescue the man who had been trapped for some time.
Police were called to the home in Tomlins Grove, Bow, after the householder spotted the man's head and upper body poking through the window.
His legs were still dangling outside and it appeared his bottom had prevented the man from squeezing through completely.
A Scotland Yard spokesman said: "At 7.30am we were called to reports of a male found stuck in a downstairs window at a house in Tomlins Grove, Bow.
"It appears the resident had come down and found the man. He was stuck half in, half out.
"The man was eventually freed by London Fire Brigade who apparently removed the window frame.
"The man, aged 36, was unhurt and has been arrested on suspicion of burglary."
The incident is being investigated by police at Bethnal Green.
A spokeswoman for London Fire Brigade said: "We were called at 8.09am this morning and the incident was over by 8.37am.
"There were two crews from Bow Fire Station at the scene.
"We were just assisting the police."
