Three Suffolk fire appliances today responded to a muntjac deer stuck in a harbour.
It was stuck behind Asda, in Kirkley Ham off Lowestoft's inner harbour, connected to Oulton Broad and the River Waveney.
Two units attended on land after receiving a call shortly after 10am, and later called for a boat to rescue the deer.
It is not know how the deer got into the harbour.
The service were on scene for just over an hour, and a spokesperson has confirmed: "the muntjac is rescued and is back on dry land."
