Stuck after big night
A Christchurch man who got stuck in a hole after a big night out required police help to escape. The intoxicated man called police to a Cashmere address about 3.45am yesterday. A police spokesman said the man got himself ‘‘into a bit of a difficulty’’ on arriving home. ‘‘He somehow became stuck between a concrete wall and a fence, which is described as a large hole.’’ But with help from the police, he was removed from the hole unharmed, and returned to his home ‘‘safe and well’’.
