A girl got stuck in a drain after attempting to retrieve her dropped phone.

Ella Birchenough had to be rescued by firefighters when she became stuck waist deep in a drain in a quiet residential area in Kent, southeast England after she tried to save her BlackBerry, which had fallen through the grate covering the sewer.

The 16-year-old college student removed the drain cover and tried to lower herself into the small space feet first, but was instantly trapped.

She told the Independent newspaper: "I was talking to somebody and I went to put my phone in my pocket and it fell down the drain."

Ella claimed that she wasn't "really even stuck" and that she just needed someone "to help lift" her out, however fire crews arrived at the scene and hauled her to safety.

She added: "There have been a few nasty comments about me being fat which isn't nice but I'm trying not to take it to heart.

"I have seen the funny side of it. You just have to laugh along with it."
