Firefighters free trapped fox cub in Highgate

Ham&High reports… Firefighters had an unusual call-out on Saturday afternoon when they helped rescue a trapped fox in Highgate.

The tiny cub was wedged between some fencing in a garden in the Grove.

After arriving at the scene just after 3.10pm, a crew from Kentish Town fire station used specialist equipment to free the alarmed animal. The RSPCA then stepped in to take care of him.

The work of a firefighter is so much more than just attending fires. Every day crews across London are called to a range of incidents including road traffic collisions and floods, and firefighters also do lots of preventative work within the community to help stop fires from starting in the first place.
