ONE of our boys in blue was left red-faced af­ter lock­ing him­self in his OWN hand­cuffs.

Fire­fight­ers were begged for help af­ter the un­named cop be­came trapped in his man­a­cles.

The of­fi­cer, from the Sus­sex force, got stuck while tak­ing part in a train­ing ex­er­cise at Gatwick po­lice sta­tion.

A spokesman from the fire brigade said: “The lock of the hand­cuffs, which were at­tached to his left wrist, re­fused to open and he was un­able to re­move them.

“He was driven to Hor­ley fire sta­tion where the cuffs were cut free.”

The of­fi­cer isn’t be­ing iden­ti­fied to spare his blushes.
