A woman had a ring cut from her swollen finger by Ely fire service on Monday (January 3).
Jackie Mowatt went to the fire station on Egremont Street to have it removed.
She said: “A massive thank you to Ely fire brigade who cut a ring off my swollen finger.
“They were all so kind and couldn’t do enough for me.
“They put me totally at ease and are all superstars!”.
When contacting Cambridgeshire fire and rescue service about the removal, they explained that they deal with around 30 incidents a year that require an object being removed from a person.
“The most common would be removing a ring from a finger,” said a spokesperson.
