Fire crews were helped by a local photography company who used a drone to pinpoint their location.

A fire service spokesman said they were ‘immensely grateful’ to the photography company for their assistance.

The rooftops in the town centre are a maze but the images captured by the drone allowed us to locate the teenagers and meant that officers did not have to put themselves at risk by accessing the roof”.

– CHIEF INSPECTOR PHIL VICKERS

The teenagers were brought safely to the ground around two hours later with the help of the Aerial Ladder Platform from Lincoln South.
