A terrified fox cub was saved from death when it was pulled from a freezing drain after a passer-by heard her whimpers.
The fox, thought to be between four and five-weeks-old, was rescued after a member of the public heard her cries coming from the bottom of a drain and dialled 999.
Firefighters found the animal in Lewisham, south east London and alerted the RSPCA.
Abbie Fright, RSPCA animal collection officer, said if the cub had been there any longer, she wouldn't have survived.
The cub was frozen with fear and very cold, so firefighters gave her some oxygen and Abbie wrapped her in towels and blankets to warm her up.
The little cub - named Dinah - is now being cared for by volunteers at The Fox Project in Kent.
