Man trapped up 290ft chimney in England sparks major rescue operation

Police in England are attempting to rescue a man atop a 290-foot-high chimney.

Footage shows a helicopter hovering above the Dixon Chimney in Carlisle, Cumbria on Monday morning (October 28) and a figure, upside down with his legs in the air, at the top.

The filmer explained: "[The] Dixon Chimney stands at about 290 feet, easily the tallest structure in Carlisle or Cumbria.

"The police have been trying to rescue him since 3am but no luck so far.

"The sad story is he doesn’t seem to be moving anymore.

"It is freezing down here and it must be much worse up there." John McVay, Cumbria Fire Area Manager, said: “I’d also like to ask anyone who has a cherry picker in excess of 90 metres within or near Cumbria to please contact Cumbria Police or Cumbria Fire and Rescue Service on 999.”
