    Sun Mar 30, 9:40 AM ET

    LONDON (Reuters) - A suspected burglar, who spent seven hours wedged in the chimney of a pub, was arrested by British police after he was rescued, the Daily Telegraph newspaper reported on Satu*day.

    The man was stuck down the chimney of the Twin Farms pub in the northern city of Newcastle on Friday, and was only rescued after a deliveryman heard his cries for help. Firemen used a rope to haul him to safety.

    "It was a bit like a cheese grater because sharp bits were sticking into him," the Telegraph quoted fireman Dave Curran as saying. "He was shouting and swearing as he was being brought up as his skin was scraping off his knuckles and other parts of his body, but he didn't suffer serious injuries."

    When questioned by police, the man said he had been trying to rescue a cat.
