A GAME of hide and seek went wrong for two children who had to be rescued by fire crews.

An eight-year-old and 10-year-old child, who are siblings, were playing the game at their home on Meadow View, Orrell, and got stuck in one of the rooms after the door handle snapped off from the inside.

The childrens’ father tried to get them out but did not have the right tools so had to call the Fire Service .

Fire crews were able to free the children within minutes of their arrival at the scene.

They had been stuck in the room for about an hour and were uninjured.
