Firefighters in west Norfolk had an unusual start to their day after being called out to rescue five ducklings from a drain.
The birds became trapped after falling through a drain grate on Staithe Road, near to its junction with Malthouse Crescent, in Heacham.
A retained fire crew from the town, along with a fire officer, were called to assist the RSPCA with releasing the animals shortly after 8.20am on Saturday.
They used a variety of equipment - including a bucket - to bring the ducklings to safety.
It is understood all of the birds made it out alive and were reunited with their mother.
