Some players at the Mecca Bingo Hall in Folly Hall, Huddersfield were left a little shell shocked on Wednesday night when a group of them got stuck in the bingo hall lift for 25 minutes due to the lift doors becoming stuck – clearly a problem that online bingo players would never suffer from. In the end Michelle Winfield who is the general manager of Mecca Bingo in Huddersfield had to call the fire brigade who soon prised open the doors and helped everyone to safety.
In total six Mecca Bingo players were stuck in the lift however they were unharmed except for one 78 year old lady who experienced feeling breathless and faint due to claustrophobia. The good news is that the paramedics checked her over and gave her a good bill of health so she was able to return home after her ordeal.
