A CHILD IN Derry had to be cut free by fire crews yesterday, after his hand became trapped in a cinema seat.

The young boy had been attending the cinema to see the new Smurfs film with his family, but had managed to get his hand trapped in the seat at the Omniplex in the Quayside Shopping Centre yesterday afternoon.

Crews from Northland and Crescent Links attended the scene, and used a hydraulic cutter, socket sets and screwdrivers to free him.

It is not believed that the boy required hospital treatment afterwards but both he and his mother and father were relieved when he was eventually freed.
