A man was forced to call the emergency services after a toilet roll holder got stuck up his poop chute at his house in Newport, South Wales, UK.
The unidentified man was reportedly unable to move and decided to dial 999 from his mobile phone.
Firemen then removed the object, with paramedics providing medical attention at the scene.
The Fire Brigades Union in Wales is quoted as saying: ”We do have to deal with wacky things.
‘Sometimes someone will tell you a story and you just think: “I can’t top that”.
‘To be honest, if I managed to get myself into one of these sorts of scrapes, the last thing I would want would be a whole crew of firefighters coming to see me.’
