Bird gets into a flap in Harleston


A bird got itself into a bit of a tangle in Harleston yesterday morning when it became trapped in a television aerial.

The RSPCA were called to St Mary’s Close sometime before 9.45am, and a fire officer was also requested to attend, but the bird was able to free itself before anyone arrived.

A spokeswoman for the RSPCA said: “A local animal collection officer alerted the fire service and attended the scene but, on arrival, could not find a bird at the location so cancelled the fire officer’s attendance.

“Anyone who sees an injured or trapped bird, or any other animal in distress, is advised to call our 24-hour emergency line on 0300 1234 999.”

The fire service was called, which is routine for any potential rescue at height, the spokesperson added.
