A Welshman was forced to call 999 after he got a toilet roll holder stuck up his bottom.
The un-named man, who appears to have been home at the time, was left unable to move, but luckily had his mobile phone close by.
Firemen who attended the scene were able to free him from the object successfully, but he did require on the spot medical treatment from paramedics
The firemen then provided the the man, from Newport, South Wales, with “suitable advice” to avoid getting into a similar predicament again, the Mirror reports.
“We do have to deal with wacky things,” the Fire Brigades Union in Wales told the newspaper.
“Sometimes someone will tell you a story and you just think: 'I can’t top that'.
“To be honest, if I managed to get myself into one of these sorts of scrapes, the last thing I would want would be a whole crew of firefighters coming to see me!”
