Today we had an incident in Heaton, young man stepped on some tarmac and lost his footing The tarmac had become so soft during the current heatwave that it melted. He stayed calm & called 999 Thankfully he didn’t break his ankle he was wearing his granddads @drmartens!#StaySafe pic.twitter.com/D77PdsC9wG— Tyne and Wear FRS (@Tyne_Wear_FRS) July 5, 2018
Walking like do do do do clump!!! Fire officers had to dig around him with a hammer and chisel before they were able to ease out his trapped limb.
This is probably how he reacted tho...
