The emergency services, on arrival, were initially stumped. They sidled from one side of the trapped phenomenon to the other with wide, shocked eyes, until declaring that they were utterly flabbergasted. Therefore they immediately called for specialist back up.
The specialist back up arrived promptly three hours later, scratched their stubbly chins, went for several cigarettes and then looked on Google for any solution to the problem that sounded vaguely plausible. They had to concede to a fraught Maria that they’d never before been confronted with the strange problem that they were at that moment faced with.
It was then decided, after three more cigarettes that they should call Uri Geller. It was his field after all.
He told them, with a tired shrug, that it wasn’t even his front garden before unceremoniously hanging up on them.
Eventually it was decided that they would have to chip Colin from the wall as delicately as they possibly could.
They contacted Tony Robinson M.B.E. to gather his archaeologist friends and, armed with fossil brushes and tiny trowels they made a documentary as they released the soon to be re-dubbed, world famous “Psychic Worrier”, Colin Worthington from his strange prison.
