Woman asleep in BHS Reading toilet rescued by fire crews

A woman had to be rescued after she fell asleep in the toilets of a Reading department store and was locked in by staff, police have said.

The 39-year-old became trapped in the BHS store in Broad Street after it closed at 18:00 BST on Saturday.

A passer-by called 999 when they saw the woman calling for help from a first floor window at about 21:15 BST.

Fire crews used an aerial platform to reach the unharmed woman before she was taken home by police.
