Fire crews were called to a child stuck in a mop bucket this afternoon.

Crews from South Yorkshire Fire & Rescue Service’s Dearne station in Rotherham, rescued an 18-month-old girl from a mop bucket at about 1pm today.

The toddler, from Adwick road, Mexborough, Doncaster was rescued safely and was not injured.

The fire service tweeted: “Child stuck in a mop bucket? No problem! 18 month old girl freed by Dearne firefighters without injury.”

A spokesman for the service added: “It was nothing too serious and was put out to show we do attend more than just fires.

“Most of the time we are called to people stuck in railings and that sort of thing.

“Personally I have never heard of something like this but it’s not unusual for us to release children.”
