A 12-YEAR-OLD boy was treated by paramedics after his leg became trapped in a bicycle.

The youngster, who has not been named, had fallen off his bike at the junction of Malvern Terrace and Bonnywell Road, Leigh, shortly after 8.30pm on Tuesday.

Fire crews from Sale were called to the scene and managed to release his leg, which had somehow become lodged between the bike frame and pedal arm.

Paramedics then treated the boy at the scene, although it is not thought he was seriously hurt.
