7:35am Thursday 13th December 2012 in News
FIREFIGHTERS rescued a man who became stuck on his roof last night after some DIY work.
The man in his 30s had been fixing the roof of his two-storey house when he became stuck on a ledge in the sub zero temperatures.
Firefighter Steve White from Redbridge said they helped the man down from the home in Grove Road, Shirley.
He said: “It wasn't something that took long, it was just a case of helping him down but I would imagine he was grateful for the assistance.”
