Woman trapped in church

A woman who got trapped in a church had to use twitter to get out.

Sarah Greep got stuck inside when a volunteer locked up without checking to see if anyone was still in a side chapel.

Sarah, who has two children, appealed on twitter for help. She wrote, "I'm locked in inside St Andrews Church! I was in a private praying chapel & when I came out everyone was gone & doors locked #Plymouth#help"

Her tweets were answered

She also tweeted a video.

Luckily her tweet was read by the leader of Plymouth Council Tudor Evans. He called the police who then tracked down somebody who had keys.
