There were dramatic scenes in Buckingham town centre yesterday, Tuesday, May 4, as firefighters scaled a three-storey building to remove a dangling TV aerial

Fire crews from Buckingham and West Ashland were called to the scene in Castle Street at around 3.10pm, after a member of the public reported a TV aerial hanging precariously from the Stoneleigh House Boutique Hotel.

Firefighters used a turntable ladder to scale the building and remove the aerial, which was hanging over the edge of the roof of the three-storey building, over a public pathway.
