Dramatic scenes as firefighters scale Buckingham building
Fire crews called out to remove TV aerial hanging precariously over path
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.
