Fire engine stuck for two hours on ungritted road in Bradford

A FIRE engine was unable to attend a callout on Tuesday night after getting stuck on an ungritted road in Bradford for over two hours.

Firefighters from Fairweather Green were attending a potential house fire in Lynfield Drive, but got stuck in compacted snow and ice in Heights Lane at around 7.45pm.

The callout was to a smoking electrical socket.


Fortunately Shipley firefighters were deployed to the same call and managed to get to the address from a different route.

A spokesman for the fire service said: "The lane is quite steep and there had been no salt spread on it at all. We got stuck and couldn't move. We ended up having to dig the engine out and spread salt so we could turn round and get back and it meant the engine was not in use for that time.
