Dan De-Niet, 20, and Tom Burdett, 19, found the man crying and screaming as he was wedged in the Arkwright building at Nottingham Trent University.

The pair were coming back from a night out at 2:30am on Friday morning when they heard the bungling burglar.

They originally thought that the man was a drunken student, but when he told them he was 27-years-old they twigged that it was highly unlikely. The man tried to hide his dignity but left his bum exposed as firefighters and police came to free him. The man, who was clearly in agony, told the students that he had been stuck in a handstand position half in, half out of the building for five hours.
