A person has been freed by emergency services this afternoon after they got their hand stuck in a machine at a Burger King in West Auckland.

Two fire engines attended the fast-food restaurant at Westgate Shopping Centre, a spokeswoman for Fire and Emergency New Zealand said.

Emergency services were called to the location around 2pm, however, a short time afterwards the person's hand was freed.

The type of machine the person trapped their hand inside was not known.
