Unless you have been a police officer or have been arrested by a police officer (as opposed to your partner using fluffy pink cuffs), then it might be quite hard to imagine what it feels like being stuck in some handcuffs.
It’s not a nice feeling, and the more you try to wiggle out of them, then the more they hurt.
But when a police officer decided to try their cuffs out, something went wrong with the mechanism, and the officer was, well, stuck.
So that meant that there was only one thing for it: call out the firefighters to rescue the stricken cop.
A tweet published by Northants Fire read simply:
’09:46 Police Officer released from handcuffs after they had failed, used pedal cutters to release.’
Other Twitter users were quick to point out that the obligatory ‘cake fine‘ should now be ‘paid’ by the police officer.
Mr Kipling has been put on standby!
