Girl’s nail ordeal

A TEENAGE girl needed medical treatment after standing on a nail in a field.

The girl was walking in a field, off Monkton Road, in the Owton Manor area of Hartlepool, when she stood on a nail sticking out of a fence post.

Fire crews from Stranton Fire Station were called to help carry the girl to the nearest road due because she was in too much pain to walk.

She was then treated by paramedics. Fire crews and medics were called at 8.15pm on Wednesday.
