Kind-hearted pigeon lovers in Sprowston called the fire service to rescue a bird trapped behind a chimney.

One appliance from Sprowston was mobilised to rescue the bird in Thornham Close, just after midday today.

The crew used small gear to release the animal, and a spokesman for Norfolk Fire and Rescue Service said the pigeon was now safe and well.

  • Thank goodness the pigeon is safe and well would have been a waste of money otherwise?
