Firefighters used a rope-rescue system to rescue the 17-year-old church bell-ringer from St Helen’s Church in Abingdon, Oxfordshire.

The team lowered him from the bell to the floor on a stretcher before he was taken to hospital after suffering a number of injuries from the ropes.

 

It is not clear how serious his injuries are.

Station manager Paul Webster told The Sunday Telegraph: “Due to the steepness of the spiral staircase to the bell ringing room, there was not the option to carry the casualty out of the church on a stretcher.”
