Police have recorded the moment they knocked down the door of a Gloucester home to rescue an elderly man.
An officer had to break the door down at the Longlevens house after climbing a mountain of post that had gathered in the porch.
The intervention came this afternoon after concerns for the welfare of the elderly man living inside
Using a ram, known as the ‘big red key’, officers gained entry after climbing over a 2ft high pile of post that had gathered.
The police posted a three-second clip of the break-in on its Gloucester Twitter page and you can the officer slip after throwing the ram due to the amount of correspondence underneath his feet.
Fortunately the man was located safe and well and Gloucestershire police said they were referring him to agencies to ensure he gets the help he needs.
