A fox had a lucky escape last week when she was rescued from a closed industrial waste bin at a church in Kent.
The animal was found trapped inside the bin at Bromley Methodist Church in College Road in Bromley on Saturday 12th September.
The lid of the bin was closed and so heavy that she would not have had the strength to lift it by herself.
A male fox cub was rescued after becoming stuck between two brick-built garages in Emsworth. Hampshire Fire & Rescue's animal rescue team were called out after the cub became stuck in the cavity 12 inches below the concrete base and three metres in.
Animal rescuer Buster Brown, then used a drill, hammer and chisel to remove the bricks from inside the garage wall to reach it. He said:
"This process took nearly two hours as I had to remove the bricks carefully to ensure I didn't injure the animal."
The fox was later released unharmed.
