A firefighter from Great Yarmouth performed an unorthodox rescue on Sunday morning - saving an injured seagull that had got stuck on a street lamp.
The service was called at 8.30am, after the bird, which had suffered a damaged wing, got trapped atop a lamp on Regent Road, in Great Yarmouth.
The officer used an aerial ladder platform to retrieve the gull, which was unable to successfully self-rescue, as a squirrel had done from a tree last week in Wymondham.
The RSPCA also attended the rescue, taking the bird away for treatment after the officer removed it from the perch it had found itself stranded on.
