An Australian woman was rescued after spending a week wedged between her toilet door and the bowl.

A Queensland state government spokesman said the 67-year-old was taken to hospital suffering from dehydration following her ordeal in the eastern city of Ipswich.

It ended on Sunday when firefighters removed the inward-opening toilet door from its hinges.

The woman was not seriously ill.

The woman, who has not been named, fell in the early hours of Sunday and somehow became trapped between the toilet bowl and the inward-opening door.

A neighbour heard her cries for help on Sunday morning and called police.
