Firefighters came to the rescue of a stranded kitten today.

The adventurous kittie had managed to climb onto some guttering high up on a house in Sterne Avenue, Tang Hall.

But then it realised it couldn’t get down

First the RSPCA were called in. But they could not rescue the pet, so inspectors called in the fire brigade.

A crew from Acomb responded to the call at 9.33am today (Tuesday).

Firefighters used a triple extension ladder to reach the kitten and bring it safely down to earth.
