A hacksaw, pliers and a screwdriver were used by firefighters to remove a ring from the thumb of an 18-year-old woman.
A fire crew from Bracknell station were called to Heatherwood Hospital, Ascot, at 7.15pm last night where staff at the minor injuries unit needed assistance.
Bracknell watch manager Miles Cooper said: "The ring had got stuck and her thumb had swollen up.
"She was fine - medical staff had started trying to get it off in a number of ways."
The crew were there for around 20 minutes.
