Brave little boy rescued from tree

A “REALLY brave” little boy was rescued by firefighters after he got stuck in a tree.

The boy’s leg got stuck between two branches at the foot of the tree in Bell Meadow, behind Marks and Spencer in Chelmsford.

Andy Anderson from Chelmsford Fire Station said: “The little boy’s leg had become trapped between two thick branches at the stump of the tree. Crews used hydraulic equipment to spread the branches apart to release the boy safely.

“The boy was unhurt and was really brave as crews rescued him.”
