Seventy-year-old Chris McCabe, of Totnes, Devon, England, found himself stuck when the wind blew the door of his outdoor freezer shut.

He tried to crack the ice with a leg of lamb but it was too big.

He chose to look to his surroundings for a way to break the ice covering the safety button which would free him.

The incident was reminiscent of Kung Fu Kapers, a classic episode of the 1970s BBC TV comedy series The Goodies, where martial arts expert Ecky-Thump hits people on the head with a black pudding.

"No-one could hear me banging. black pudding saved my life", he said.

'It was the best thing to hit the button with because it was the right shape'.

A butcher who got stuck in a freezer owes his life to black pudding after he used a block of the blood sausage "like a battering ram" to free himself.

"I used it like the police use battering rams to break door locks in, that's what I did with the black pudding". "I'm lucky really, we sell about two or three each week and that was the last one in there". The safety button to open the door had frozen in the -20 C (-4 F) chill.

"My heart sank for a moment, then I thought 'I'll have to kick myself out of it, '" he said, according to the Daily Mail. "After a bit of bashing, it gave way and I could escape. That might make it harder", Florence said.

Barry Florence from HM Sheridan said the firm was "absolutely delighted" to "play a small part in saving this man's life".
