A York teenager discovered he’d outgrown childish things on Thursday evening (May 10).

The 15-year-old boy was at the play area off Slessor Road, Acomb, when he became irretrievably wedged in a baby swing.

Firefighters from Acomb were called out to help at 7.01pm.

Using a socket set and tool kit they dismantled the swing to release the young man unharmed.
