A Norfolk firefighter has freed a trapped tortoise with nothing more than a smear of Vaseline.

Tommy the tortoise got his leg stuck in the base of a heavy sundial in a garden in East Harling.

When the owner couldn't rescue him, a fire officer from Norfolk Fire Service was called in from Thetford.
