Couple call out cops to release sex-shop handcuffs
New 8:36AM Friday August 24, 2007

An embarrassed Auckland couple had to make an emergency call to police last night to remove handcuffs they bought from a sex shop.

The man and woman, reported to be fully dressed, had put on the handcuffs after buying them that day.

They then found they could not take them off again and dialled 111.

A police spokesman said today there was a problem with the locking mechanism and a key was not needed to free the couple.

"There was nothing sinister to it. It was a light-hearted moment," he said.

He was unsure if the handcuffs were fur lined.
