FIREFIGHTERS were called in to rescue three people who got stuck trying to move a wardrobe.

North Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service say they were called out at 9.30pm last night (May 31) to a home in a York suburb.

The call from a property in Kingsway West in Acomb saw a crew from York attended an incident where three people got stuck at the top of a flight of stairs when trying to move a wardrobe that got wedged.

A service spokesman said crews used 'crew power' to move the wardrobe and free the trio.
