Two wild deer which became trapped after getting tangled up in rope in woods in Saffron Walden have been freed by the fire service and the RSPCA.
A passer by spotted the two bucks in difficulty and called the animal charity. Their antlers had become caught in rope which then got stuck around a tree in woods in Sewards End. The deer were becoming very distressed, but eventually they were freed.
The RSPCA says it is important not to leave rubbish around as it can be a danger to many animals.
A man has been arrested after police chased a stolen tractor for 15 miles across the Norfolk-Cambridgeshire border.
The police chase included a helicopter and they tailed the tractor for half an hour.
Officers were first called to a farm at Tilney St Lawrence, near King's Lynn, just before 8pm on Saturday.
They chased the vehicle to Oakroyd Crescent in Wisbech - around 15 miles away - where the driver jumped out and ran off.
The tractor - a Case Puma 160 - was abandoned just in front of homes on the residential street but police said no damage was caused.
Officers confirmed a man in his 20s had been arrested in connection with the theft.

Visitors to a wetland in Norfolk are being treated to a stunning aerial display - after thousands of black-tailed godwits descended on the site.
The flock has arrived at the Wildfowl and Wetland Trust's Welney Wetland Centre, in the Fens, from Iceland to flee the cold winter temperatures.
Two of the godwits were first ringed as part of the centre's conservation project back in 1998 and have been spotted back in Welney this year.
"Welney is an incredibly important site for Icelandic black-tailed godwits, and the sightings of individual godwits that we have marked over the last 20 years have contributed hugely to our understanding of how migratory birds select sites throughout the range, and the consequences of those site choices for those birds."
