A man had to dial 999 after getting a toilet roll holder stuck in his bottom.
He was unable to move and called from his mobile. He was freed from the toilet roll holder by firemen and needed on-the-spot medical treatment by paramedics.
The un-named man, from Newport, South Wales, was given “suitable advice” by firemen to avoid getting into a similar situation again.
South Wales Fire and Rescue Service has freed 864 people in three years – 26 were in sexy handcuffs.
The Fire Brigades Union in Wales said: “We do have to deal with wacky things. “Sometimes someone will tell you a story and you just think: 'I can’t top that'. “To be honest, if I managed to get myself into one of these sorts of scrapes, the last thing I would want would be a whole crew of firefighters coming to see me!”
The increase in the number of amorous couples getting stuck in handcuffs has been put down to the “Fifty Shades of Grey” effect.
