A group of people had to be rescued by firefighters after getting trapped in a lift in Doncaster town centre yesterday afternoon.

Doncaster fire crews were called to the Frenchgate Centre after receiving reports of four people unable to get out of the lift in the Bhs store.

They were in the lift for about an hour before a keyholder arrived to give them access to the maintenance area of the lift so the doors could be opened. There were no casualties.
