ESFRS’s Aerial Platform Outshines Stubborn Cherry Picker

A cherry picker's hiccup turned into ESFRS's spotlight moment, showcasing their ability to outmaneuver mechanical malfunctions with ease.


In a “high-flying” incident on Kings Road, Brighton, a cherry picker decided it was time for a break, stranding two people mid-air. The unexpected turn of events at 11:02 AM on March 14, 2024, drew curious glances and a few chuckles from onlookers

East Sussex Fire and Rescue Service (ESFRS) came to the rescue at 11:02 AM, March 14, 2024. “A cherry picker had stopped working, leaving two people about 35-50 foot in the air. We used our aerial ladder platform to reach them and bring them back to the ground,” reported ESFRS.

Onlookers were treated to an impromptu aerial spectacle, complete with a successful touchdown as the duo safely returned to earth.
