Little long-haired Jack Russell terrier Poppy was found in the metal fence in Bexleyheath by a member of the public.

The RSPCA rushed to help along with Kent Fire & Rescue Service.

The terrier had got herself well and truly wedged between the railings. She must have been running at some speed as her head and her two front legs were both through the gap with her body wedged between the two metal railings around her tummy.

I don’t know how she did it, there was no give in those bars! She was quite nervous and probably very uncomfortable so we set to work right away carefully trying to free her. I’d like to say a big thank you to Kent Fire & Rescue Service for helping us release Poppy.

Firefighters stretched the bars to release Poppy before pushing them back into their original shape. Once free she was taken to a nearby vet for a check-up and they discovered Poppy had escaped from the garden of her home half a mile away.
