Teen freed from Kings Langley playground swing by firefighters


For an image conscious teenager it’s the stuff that nightmares are made of - being stuck in a playground swing.

And the tale got worse for the trapped girl because the fire service had to be called to free her.

A crew from Kings Langley went to the village playground in Blackwell Road just after 6pm on Monday evening.

It is not known how the teenager got stuck as further details were not recorded on the fire service’s computer log but it took firefighters just 12 minutes to release her from the playground equipment.
