Unable to get themselves down, the police were called to help the men to safety - and straight into custody. A West Midlands Police spokeswoman said: “Two men have been arrested on suspicion of theft after police were called just after 1am.

“The men, aged 25 and 23, had to be assisted off the mobile crane after becoming stuck in the air.” The men have been charged with aggravated vehicle taking after the incident in Tile Cross, Birmingham.
