A THREE-YEAR-OLD had to be rescued after getting stuck in an arcade machine.

Firefighters were called to a Hampshire pub where the youngster had got its shoulders inside the child's prize claw machine, often seen in amusement arcades, at around 2.30pm yesterday.

The Daily Echo understands it was an Angry Birds game machine, which was at a pub in Kingston Crescent, Buckland.

A crew from Southsea took half an hour to free the child, who was distressed but otherwise unhurt.

Buckland perhaps, not the whole of the PO area...
