THREE teenage boys have had to be rescued by firefighters after getting stuck up a tree in Leominster.

The crew was called to the Cockcroft area of Leominster to what the fire service said was a "rescue from height".

"The boys were stuck in a tree and rescued using a nine-metre ladder and given advice," a service spokesperson said after the incident at 5.36pm on Tuesday (August 31).
