Get-out clause.

Fire chiefs plan to charge firms for rescuing people trapped in lifts.

Up to 280 calls are made to emergency services each year from people stranded in lifts or locked out of their homes.

The plan to charge for non-emergency call-outs was revealed in the Tyne and Wear Fire and Rescue Authority report.

The aim is to cut the number of non-emergency call-outs and the report said it believed locksmiths and lift companies could provide a much more sophisticated service than that provided by the fire and rescue services.
