A Naval Officer spent six hours upside-down in a chimney after getting stuck during a drinking challenge. 26-year-old Tommy Brownlee was taking part in the Chimney Challenge - which involves climbing up one flue, crawling along a roof space, and then going back down another to win free drinks.


    But the lieutenant got stuck on the way down and was left the wrong way up, forcing firefighters and specialist rescue teams to come out to rescue him at the Royal Navy Air Station in Yeovilton, Somerset.


    Pictures showed the pilot looking dazed as he was wheeled away on a medical stretcher after first going up the chimney in the early hours of Sunday morning. It is not clear whether the lieutenant can expect any kind of punishment.
