FIREFIGHTERS went to the rescue after a family were trapped in a bedroom.
A toddler, young girl and couple ended up stuck in the room at the house on Gledholt Road in Gledholt after the lock disintegrated.
Other people in the house raised the alarm just before 9.30am yesterday.
Crew manager Bryan Rowley, of Huddersfield Fire Station, said: "As we arrived outside the door a note appeared from underneath which simply said: `Help'.
"The lock had jammed solid so we had to crowbar the door open, but caused little damage and the door remained on its hinges!"
