The man called Amersham Station in Buckinghamshire at 6.45pm on Saturday.

His right hand got stuck in the metal teapot while he was washing it, a Buckinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service spokesman said.

Station officers used a tin snip tool to get the man's hand out within a few minutes.

The man was not injured.

The same station had to remove a snake that was caught in someone's bangle a few years ago.
