BARNSTAPLE fire fighters rode to the rescue on Saturday night after two teenage girls became trapped in the skate bowl at Rock Park.

One of the girls called the fire service just after 10pm to report she and a friend were stuck at the bottom of the ramp and unable to climb out because the sides were too slippery after it rained.

The crew were soon able to scoop the pair from their predicament.
