FIREFIGHTERS had to help a young child whose finger was stuck in a bucket this morning.

A fire engine from Gloucester attended the scene in Dorney Road shortly before noon today.

A boy's finger had become trapped in a draining hole in the metal mop bucket.

Firefighters reduced the swelling of the finger and then used washing up liquid to ease the toddler's finger free from the bucket.

Ambulance crews were also called to the incident. They checked the child but he was uninjured.
