Elland firefighters rescued two men in their 20s who were trapped in a lift at Silk Mill, Dewsbury Road, Elland.

One man used his mobile to raise the alarm after the lift stuck between floors around 9.30 pm last night.

Firefighters accessed the control panel to lower the lift and the men were rescued after about 20 minutes.

The lift was then left out of action awaiting an engineer to rectify the fault.
