Waterside in Knaresborough

A man had to be rescued from a toilet cubicle in Knaresborough today.

This is the second time firefighters have been called out to free a man from public conveniences in the town in the last six months.

Today’s incident took place on Waterside just after 8am.

North Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service‘s incident report said:

“Knaresborough fire crew released a male trapped in a toilet cubicle due to a faulty locking mechanism.

“Crews used small tools only.”

The previous incident took place in the York Place car park in August last year.

Firefighters used a door enforcer on that occasion.

No similar incidents in other Harrogate district toilets have been reported recently.
