Five firefighters and an engineer had to be called when two people were trapped in a lift in Helston this morning.

The fire crews arrived first and managed to access the lift control panel in an attempt to release the pair, but were unable to.

An engineer eventually arrived and managed to solve the problem - freeing the two people trapped inside.

The incident took place in a property on Clodgey Lane. The call came in to Cornwall Fire and Rescue Service at 10.52am.

One fire engine also attended the scene.
