A 28-year-old woman spent five hours trapped in her bathroom after the door’s lock failed to open.

The unnamed woman, of Pettits Lane, Romford, refused to call the London Fire Brigade (LFB) initially.

It was only when a neighbour tried and failed to open the troublesome door did she call the emergency services.

Andy Watson, the Harold Hill watch manager, said: “She did not want to make a fuss.

“There was a problem with the door mechanism.”

Mr Watson added the issue is quite common but said his crew “did not mind” having to help the woman at all.
