What a waste of firemen's time. Surely her dad could have just yanked it off.

No one cares what you think says...

The five-year-old trapped her leg in the bicycle (not a push bike then) as she (you may like to put the word 'was' here) riding round (around) the Flowers Estate.
Back in the day, parents and neighbours would have just sorted this out.

It was probably 8 pm by the time the parents realised they needed to call for further help. Also being the school holidays, surely 8 pm is not unreasonable.

How do you know her mother isn't a single parent? Moron, if you had a brain, you'd be the end of the world.

Maybe a older child not 5 year old. This is how kids get kidnapped

If kidnappers want a child, they will take any oppurtunity they can to take a child, doesn't matter if it's 8AM or 8PM, first sign of the child not being watched, they strike.

Fire & Rescue service, 'Rescue' being the o
important word in the article! If the AA turned up to deal with it then you could have a moan! Our fire service responds to a wide & diverse range of incidents, think yourself lucky we still have one of the best in the world..
