A cat was saved after becoming entangled in a mountain bike.

The black and white cat was spotted by a delivery driver after it got trapped in a gap between the bike's frame.

He tried to free the cat but the bike was chained up to a balcony so he called police.

Officers then called the RSPCA who arrived at the scene in Greenford, west London.

The driver tried to free the cat but couldn't and, as the bike was chained up outside a house, he called the police who alerted us.

The cat had his head and front legs stuck on one side of the bike frame having tried to climb through the gap between the back wheel and the chain.

He was completely stuck and the bike was upside down, hanging over a balcony, so I was worried about freeing the cat in such a precarious position.

We were able to support his back end and help him squeeze himself through the gap and, luckily, he wasn't any worse for wear!"

The cat was checked over and but his microchip was foreign and his owners could not to traced.
