Pub-goers in Oldham were left in hysterics when a cheeky punter apparently tried to “sneak” into the beer garden by climbing over a fence – only to get stuck hanging upside down on the railing.
The hilarious moment – which happened at The Hope and Anchor, in Royton last Friday evening – was captured on camera by onlooker Nicole Meadows, who was simply just enjoying a drink at her local when she spotted a daring duo attempting to land a vacant bench.
The video shows one girl attempting to step over the fence to get to the bench, but appears to get her foot stuck. While she’s trying to set herself free from being trapped, her pal decides to fling herself over the railing, but unfortunately, the waist of her jeans becomes caught on the metalwork of the fence and ends up flipping her the wrong way to leave her suspended upside down.
After about 30 seconds upside down, the unknown woman is finally helped back over the fence by a stranger who comes to help.
The woman then hilariously exclaims “I’ve hurt my vagina” to entertained customers.
“It was hilarious. I’ve never seen anything like that before [and] everybody was laughing.” Nicole, from Middleton, admitted.
“They’d closed the doors because the pub was full, but there were still a couple of empty benches outside [so] the girls were trying to climb over the fence to sit at one of the benches and get served.
“The first girl managed to get over, but the second one didn’t.
“We all found it funny [and] she’s lucky it’s an open beer garden because she could have been dangling there”.
The landlady of The Hope and Anchor pub, Margaret Newton, claims she asked the two girls to come back another time and was glad they weren’t hurt.
“The door was shut, she tried to get in and she wasn’t served.” Margaret said.
“That’s the only thing I can say. I told her to come back later on when it might have died down, but she didn’t do [and] I haven’t seen her since.
“They do tend to climb over the fence [but] if they climb over, the rule is they don’t get served. I’ll just be glad when we can get back to normal [so] we’ll be able to welcome people back in and save all this hassle”.
She added: “I’m just glad she didn’t hurt herself”.

James Corden is trending as football fans joke loser of England vs USA ‘has to keep him’
Twitter users might have noticed that James Corden is trending again – and it’s not because it’s nearly Gavin and Stacey Christmas Special season.
The reason the British actor, comedian and presenter is trending is much funnier.
Once the World Cup games were matched up and we realised England and USA would face off in the group stages, people started joking that they would use Corden as a punishment for losing.
It’s become an ongoing joke that the loser of tonight’s World Cup match will ‘have to keep James Corden’.
And nobody seems to want that.
Corden fell out of favour last month when New York restaurant Balthazar called him ‘a tiny Cretin of a man’ and said that he abused their staff on his visit.
He was banned, then apologised, and now all seems to be forgiven.
But the internet does not forgive so easily.
At the time of writing, England vs USA is drawn 0-0.
Here are some of the tweets that sum up why James Corden is trending tonight:
You can buy half Christmas trees so you don’t have to decorate the full thing
December is nearly ready for rolling around once again.
It’s time to reach out the decorations out and get into the festive spirit, but for those who’d consider themselves a bit lazy, there’s an invention that could be a life saver, and it’s quite honestly genius.
You can now buy ‘half Christmas trees’ – otherwise known as or ‘against the wall Christmas trees’.
Unless your tree’s going to placed in front of a street-facing window for rafts of passers-by to see on a daily basis, it can be really tempting to just not decorate the back of it at all, right? The faff off trying to evenly-distribute strings of lights, tinsel and baubles around a full tree is often a lot more trouble than it’s worth, especially when it’s not going to be properly seen anyway.
Some would probably say it’s pointless, and it’s this thought that has presumably prompted companies to start selling these ‘half Christmas trees’.
If you’re wondering what a ‘half Christmas tree’ is, it’s basically exactly as it sounds – half a tree.
Half Christmas trees – which are also a great option for those with slightly less space to dedicate to seasonal decorations – are available in various places, and for all manner of budgets, so it should be fairly easy to get your hands on one this festive season.
According to the product description on the Very website: “This may look like a regular Christmas tree, but it’s been cleverly designed so that one side is completely flat, so no matter how limited your space might be, you and your family can still enjoy the magic of having a tree in your home,”
“Standing an impressive 6ft tall and featuring 511 tips for a lush look, you can stand it flat against the wall to save on valuable floor space,
“It also means you don’t have to worry about any of your favourite decorations being out of sight at the back”.
If you’re looking for something a little cheaper though, then there’s plenty of different options available on eBay and Amazon too, and our pick for this would be the vidaXL Artificial Half Christmas Tree – which is currently being sold on eBay by a number of different sellers for prices starting at £24.
