FIREFIGHTERS rescued a trampoline stuck on a telegraph pole in Hayle this morning.

A crew was called to Strawberry Lane at 9.15am.

A spokesman for Cornwall Fire and Rescue Service said: "The trampoline was blown there during yesterday's gales.

"We used a triple extension ladder and a ceiling hook to move it."

Neighbour Bob Amos, who took this photograph, said: "I am not sure who it belongs to but it must have travelled some distance.

"Interestingly, we lost a large 12 foot, steel framed trampoline in a similar fashion about two years ago. On that occasion it miraculously made its own way 80 metres or so up our drive and lifted itself over seven foot entrance gates.

"Suffice it to say, it was a  right-off.

"Clearly trampolines are susceptible to this sort of behaviour and I certainly would not fancy being underneath one when it decides to land."

    This seems to happen a lot - did anyone see all the 'trampoline' related pictures and videos on youtube and various websites when New York had the storms? I'm not saying trampolines would really be able to withstand hurricanes - but it may be worth all those people who are worries about their trampolines flying off down the road to get an anchor kit or two, it may prevent this happening!! - http://tinyurl.com/cn3lag8

    Trampolines are becoming a bit of a menace, my neighbours car was damaged badly by a trampoline the owner of which is refusing to even help with the cost of the repairs. All trampoline instructions clearly state that they can be lifted in strong wind and that they should either be dismantled or anchor kits can be bought to secure them. common sense really!
