Elland firefighters came to the aid of a disabled woman stuck in her bath.

Battery-operated lifting equipment failed and the woman, in her 80s, was unable to get out.

Her husband, also in his 80s, was unable to lift her and called for help.

The crew arrived at the property at Church Street, Paddock, Huddersfield, around 7.45 pm last night, and lifted the woman from the bath into a wheelchair.
