TOURIST LOCKED IN RYDE TOILETS FREED BY FIREFIGHTERS

appleytoiletblock2Firefighters freed a tourist who was accidentally locked in the female toilets at Appley Park in Ryde for nearly an hour this evening (Saturday).

The woman was spending a penny at around 20:00 when the door was locked suddenly without warning. The visitor to the seaside town was trapped inside the block for nearly 60 minutes before firefighters from Ryde cut the bolt off the door, much to the woman’s relief.

Locals passing by the area heard the woman’s calls for help and thankfully one of those passing had a key to unlock the disabled toilet, where an emergency number was located. Eventually, after speaking to Police on 101, the fire appliance was sent to the scene.
