Two women rescued from the roof of a building in Digbeth.

Firefighters, from Highgate Fire Station, were dispatched to Moat Lane in Digbeth, at around 7PM on Monday evening (17/10), to reports of two women trapped inside a building.


On arrival, crews found the women on the roof of the building – it is believed they were locked in and unable to get downstairs so they climbed out of the window and on to the roof.

Police closed the road whilst firefighters used a hydraulic platform to rescue the women from the roof.

A spokesperson from West Midlands Fire Service, said: “The two women were trapped. They made their way to the roof of the building where they were led to safety by firefighters using a hydraulic platform. They were certainly relieved to get their feet back on the ground.”
