Media captionChris McCabe says he owes his life to the cylinder of blood and suet

A butcher who became trapped in a walk-in freezer escaped thanks to a frozen black pudding.

Chris McCabe, 70, said he got trapped after the freezer entrance in his store in Totnes, Devon, blew shut behind him.

Stranded in temperatures of -2 0C( -4F ), with the door-release button frozen shut, he said he applied the 1.5 kg( 3.3 lbs) sausage as a battering ram on the release mechanism.

Mr McCabe said: “No-one could hear me banging. Black pudding saved my life.”
