Two people had to be rescued by firefighters after a mechanical fault left them trapped in the lift at a Halifax nursing home.

The male and female member of staff became trapped in the lift at Hazelroyd Nursing Home, Savile Park Road, yesterday (Thursday) at 4pm.

Firefighters from Halifax attended the incident and managed to open the lift doors and lowered the lift to the ground floor level so the occupants could escape.

Nobody was injured and the crew left after around 20 minutes.
