Fire crews have rescued a deer that became trapped in a metal gate in Gateshead.
The young buck got its head stuck in a gate at Greenside in Ryton and had been trapped for some time. The animal was suffering from abrasion injuries around its neck and was clearly distressed.
Green Watch from Swalwell Community Fire was called out to the site. A flash hood was placed over the deer's face to calm it down, before the bars of the gate were spread and the animal was released.
