We’ve all heard of firefighters being called to rescue over-ambitious moggies stuck in trees, but yesterday a crew from Hemel Hempstead’s Queensway base raced one engine out to a feathered friend in a flap.

The RSPCA had been alerted to a pigeon caught in some netting in Bridge Street, but were unable to free the bothered bird so called in the fire service for assistance shortly before 1pm.

The pigeon was freed within half an hour.
