AN INVESTIGATION has been launched as to how two fire-fighters became trapped above a burning building after an error on the fire engine.

The fire-fighters - from Barnsley station - were tackling a serious blaze at the former workingmen's club on Farm Road in Kendray when the aerial platform on the combined aerial rescue pump froze while they were above the flames using a hose reel.

The pair were trapped above the blaze and had to escape via a ladder that other fire crews put up to the platform.

A spokesman for the Fire Brigade Union said a full investigation will have to take place.
