A man has been rescued after being trapped in a pitch black lift.
A fire crew from Wokingham was called out to Virgin Active, The Plaza, Denmark Street at 9pm yesterday (Tuesday) after a lift broke down.
The 36-year-old was trapped for about an hour until a fire team showed up.
The skilled workers just took 10 minutes to release him.
Firefighter Paul Keen said: "He was unharmed but very relieved when we managed to get him out as he'd been sitting in the dark for a while."
