A TEENAGER was rescued from a balcony at former Sandown nightclub Colonel Bogeys last night (Sunday), after he climbed up the building and could not get down.

Firefighters from Newport and Sandown attended the scene, at Culver Parade, shortly before midnight, following a worried call from his friends.

They used a ladder to help him down from the one-storey balcony. He was not injured.

An Isle of Wight Police spokeswoman said the 18-year-old was detained by police and later released.
