A MAN was released from a Newbury lift by firefighters after it became stuck last night (Wed).

Two fire engines from Newbury were called at 6.40pm to Audrey Needham House, in Victoria Grove, after a lift became stuck on the third floor.

Firefighters isolated the electrical supply to stop the lift moving and opened the door manually, with a special key, releasing the man.

A man aged approximately in his 50's was unharmed by the ordeal.

Firefighters left the scene at 7.15pm
