Firefighters were called out to rescue a bird in difficulties at a two storey building in Lowestoft.

A crew from Lowestoft South fire station were called to deal with the animal rescue following a request from the RSPCA at 1.22pm today (Monday).

They spent 40 minutes at the scene as firefighters rescued the bird from the building in Whapload Road.

This animal rescue comes after three fire crews from Lowestoft South, Great Yarmouth and Gorleston had rescued a bird caught on a pole in a separate call-out in Lowestoft.

The crews spent just over an hour carrying out the rescue, using an aerial ladder platform, after they were called to Commercial Road on Saturday, June 10 at around 5.30pm.
