Burglar gets stuck down chimney! 

A young thief got rather more than he bargained for when he got stuck down the chimney of a house he was trying to burgle in Spain!

Firefighters from Granada were called in to rescue the man from inside the pipes in the property in the Albaicín district.
The alert was raised early in the morning following reports that someone was trapped down a chimney and could not move up or down.
When firefighters and police arrived on the scene, they could hear the man shouting for help but were unable to get to him from the outside.
As the house was empty, they had to break in and dismantle the chimney to get to him.
He was eventually freed without suffering serious injury but did need medical treatment for a slight cut to his arm.
The emergency services said he admitted he was trying to burgle the house but got stuck. He was arrested and will be brought before the courts.
