Hertfordshire, UK: A man had to be rescued by a policeman after his head became wedged inside a traffic bollard for two hours.

The unfortunate chap was unable to free himself after putting the cone on his head while joking with friends in Hemel Hempstead, Hertfordshire, reports The Telegraph.

John Waterman, who captured the incident on his mobile phone, said: “I came out of Burger King and this man had the bollard stuck on his head.

“I had seen him walking with it on top of his head five minutes earlier, but now it was pulled right down.

“No one was helping him because they thought he was just messing around.”

Eventually, a police officer and passer-by managed to free the man, who was applauded by a crowd of onlookers.–ON
