A naked man found wedged in the chimney of a supermarket in Wigan has been arrested on suspicion of burglary. Police officers discovered him trapped in a chimney breast of a Tesco Express store on Ormskirk Road, Pemberton. Firefighters were called to rescue the man who had become trapped in the chimney as he tried to get out.
Police said that because the man was naked he was taken to hospital as a precaution but was treated and discharged before being arrested. A GMP spokeswoman said: "It is believed some of his clothes came off as a result of him struggling to get out of the chimney."
