A one-year-old girl whose leg became trapped in a stairgate at a house in Mountbatten Avenue, Kenilworth, had to be rescued by firefighters.

Fire crews received a call just before 11.30am on Saturday May 21 about the girl. One crew from Gaydon attended and used small gear to prise the bars of the gate apart, releasing the girl at around 11.55am.

She was then placed into the care of West Midlands Ambulance Service.
