"A teenage boy had to be rescued from caves after getting wedged between two pieces of rock when he tried to squeeze through using a move used by action hero Superman.

The 16-year-old boy was part of an outward bound group exploring the boulder chamber in the Goatchurch Cavern at Burrington Coombe.

Rather than walk around the two pieces of rock – known as Superman Squeeze – the teen decided he would try and go through it instead.

But he became firmly wedged between the two pieces of rock.

The rocks are known as the Superman Squeeze as cavers have to take a position used by the action hero when he flies - one arm in front and one arm behind - to get through.

The youngster, who was on an expedition based out of the outward bound centre at Charterhouse on The Mendips, was stuck for more than three hours."

Or the life to come, what I hear is the murmur
Of underground streams, what I see is a limestone landscape."
