Firecrews were called in to rescue a woman trapped in a McDonald’s restaurant toilet after she tried to flush the loo with her knuckles – to avoid breaking her FALSE NAILS.
The unnamed woman’s knuckle began to swell up after becoming trapped in the loo flush’s push button hole.
Firefighters used cutting equipment to remove the flush device from the toilet at the restaurant in Barnstaple, Devon, and free her finger.
A McDonald’s spokesman said: ”We check our toilets every 15 minutes to make sure everything is OK.
”The first time we checked the woman didn’t say anything, presumably because she was embarrassed.
”However, 15 minutes later she told our attendant that her finger was stuck and we had to call in the fire brigade to assist.”
A fire service spokesman said the woman was not thought to have sustained any injury, but it is not known if her nails remained intact.
