Firefighters are used to dealing with some strange emergencies, from rescuing cats from trees to freeing children's heads from railings. So when they were called to rescue a teenage girl from a baby's high chair on Sunday, they knew it wasn't a hoax.

In fact, Amber Jackson, 19, was partying with friends when they dared her to pose for a picture after jumping in the toddler seat.

After being stuck for 'some time' and developing pins and needles in her legs, the teenager had to call 999 for help.

Amber, from Hove, East Sussex, said: "People have been saying they think I'm stupid but I was drunk."

Mark Rist, head of operations at East Sussex Fire and Rescue, said: "It wasn't a hoax call – she was stuck for some time and didn't have the tools to deal with it. She would not have got out without us."

A spokeswoman added: "You would have thought she would have known better at that age."
