A 12-year-old boy got stuck on the cliff face of a 35ft (11m) high quarry after taking a short cut home.

Two boys were believed to have been playing in the area off Carlton Boulevard on Sunday evening when they got into difficulties.

One boy was found stuck about 20ft (6m) up on rocks when Lincolnshire Fire and Rescue Service attended just after 19:30 BST on Sunday.

Specialist rescue teams helped him down and no-one was hurt, a spokesman said.

Sean King, from the fire and rescue service, said: "They decided to take a short cut home and they attempted to go up the side of the quarry, which is about 35ft high.

"They got stuck but then one of the children got free, made it to the top and he went for assistance."
