PLA glued to hotend

Dear all,

After last night's print the PLA was glued to the hotend. Not sure how this could happen. I was able to get rid of the PLA below the hotend with the nozzle set to 260 degrees. Unfortunately the PLA above the nozzle is strongly glued to the hotend, I can't detach it (Please see picture below).

I couldn't find a similar case on this forum unfortunately? Does anyone have experience with this case and how to detach the PLA?

Heat it up and try to remove it with tweezers.  Be careful, it will be very hot.  

You also might have a leak.
