FIRE crews took 40 minutes to cut a man free after he became stuck in a home-made cat flap.
Police and ambulance also attended the incident which occurred at around 11pm on Saturday, July 28, at a residential home on The Marles in Exmouth.
A police officer from Exmouth Neighbourhood Beat Team described the event as a "prank gone wrong".
He said with help from his friends, the middle-aged man had tried to squeeze into a friend's house through a large cat flap when his shoulders became wedged and he was unable to move in or out.
One crew from Exmouth Fire Station and members of the neighbourhood policing team attended the incident.
The man was freed unhurt after fire fighters cut through the door to release him.
