A trapped duck had a lucky escape after it was rescued by a Wyre Forest District Council employee.

The distressed duck was found last Tuesday in a life threatening situation in Springfield Park after being trapped between the bars of the overflow sluice for several days.

Richard Bates from the Council’s Parks Team managed to free the duck from the sluice and take it to safety.
