AN elderly couple had to be rescued after they ended up trapped in their own lounge.
The couple in their 80s - who live off Halifax Road in Hove Edge - decided to go to bed at about 10 last night.
But when the man turned the door handle, it fell off.
They spent the next 90 minutes trying to get out of the room and in the end called 999 in desperation.
Brighouse firefighters responded and clambered through the front window to free them.
Crew manager Mark Hurd said: "The couple were a little embarrassed but we were glad to help.
"We removed the door handle on both sides so it wouldn't happen again and left them to toddle off to bed."
