IT started out as child's play but ended up like an episode of Fireman Sam when one Ipswich youngster's inquisitive fingers got him into a bit of a fix.

IT started out as child's play but ended up like an episode of Fireman Sam when one Ipswich youngster's inquisitive fingers got him into a bit of a fix.

Five-year-old James Vessey-Miller was upstairs in a bedroom at his Henslow Road home, in Ipswich, last night when a game he was playing went a little wrong.

He was trying to put something through the lock of a low level filing cabinet and in an effort to pull it out the other side stuck his finger round the back of the lock. Rather than succeed in his game, however, James discovered his finger was trapped.

After failed efforts by his dad, David, to release the finger they were left with little choice but to call the fire brigade.

A crew from Colchester Road arrived at the family's home at 7.35pm and within 15 minutes James' finger was free and unscathed.
