A man in the United Kingdom, who was fed up with his wife, walked into a fire station and asked firefighters to cut off his wedding ring.

The firefighters who were on duty at the station in Fareham, Hampshire, were shocked by the request of the 26-year-old man, who was not identified.

The man told the firefighters that his marriage was over and he was unable to remove the wedding ring on his own because his finger swelled.

He tried to remove the wedding ring with grease and soap, but it remained stuck. The firefighters were sympathetic, and helped him remove the ring by cutting it in half.

The manager of the fire station said that the firefighters were pleased that they have helped the man, and the man left with a smile on his face and without his ring.
