Norfolk firefighters have helped release a deer that got stuck in a gate.

One appliance from Kings Lynn was mobilised to Castle Rising Road, Wootton just after noon on Friday (January 3) and released a deer that was stuck in a gate.

The crew used hydraulic rescue equipment to release the animal.

Meanwhile, a fire crew from Earlham made the area safe after a small fire broke out on an electrical pole on Ladysmock Way in Bowthorpe at just after 12.40pm.

In Wellington Road, Great Yarmouth appliances from Yarmouth and Gorleston were called out to a building fire shortly before 11am.
