Fun-loving Clark Lamont, from Blackpark, Crocketford, near Dumfries, enjoys a bit of monkeying around, but it was a different kind of it he took part in last weekend.

Clark’s wife, Beth, was busy entertaining two of their grandchildren at the local swing park, when the pair got stuck up the climbing frame. Beth then gamely climbed up to help extract them, and then she became stuck too.

Nothing for it then but to phone Clark who was no doubt sitting enjoying the peace and quiet at home watching the footie, or some other pastoral past-time. And so it was that grandpa turned into a superhero by rescuing the oldie, and the youngies, from being stuck up there for the weekend.

I hope he saw the funny side of it!
