A WOMAN WAS superglued to the handle of her front door for nearly four hours as emergency services thought her call was a joke.

Fiona Crabb from Manchester says the ambulance was called four times before it arrived at around 10:30pm on Thursday night.

Before getting stuck to the door, Crabb saw two teenagers running from the block of apartments when she arrived home but thought nothing of it.

Crabb told TheTelegraph, “I was really worried, as it was quite painful.

When the paramedics arrived, they tried so many things to get me free. They used Coca Cola, WD-40, Fairy Liquid, hot water and vegetable oil but nothing was working.

“I started to get really scared, the longer I was glued on.”

The paramedics had to call in the fire service who unscrewed the entire door handle and Fiona was taken to hospital.
