Firefighters helped pry loose a woman whose arm became trapped under her car seat as she searched for her keys.
A fire engine was sent to Copperfields Way, in Harold Wood, to reports of a woman stuck in her car at 12.40pm yesterday (June 5).
She dropped her keys between the central console and drivers’ seat of her Range Rover Evoque.
With her left arm she reached beneath her seat to fish them out.
But, as she tried to pull her arm back out, she found she was stuck.
Firefighters used a crowbar to create some space between the console and her seat and, within a matter of seconds, she was free.
Harold Hill fire brigade watchmanager said: “She told us at the scene that she was fine, and felt a little bit stupid more than anything, and so we both went our separate ways.”
He added: “It’s not unusual for people to get stuck in their car or lose keys.
“To get your hand stuck down the seat of your car is less common.”
Were you the woman stuck inside the car? If so, we’d like to hear from you.
