Firefighters have rescued a fox that got its head stuck in a wheel in Romford.

The London Fire Brigade helped a volunteer from South Essex Wildlife Hospital to remove the cub’s head from the wheel.

A spokesman encouraged the public to call the RSPCA if they see an animal stuck or in distress, but said that firefighters are “happy to assist if required”.

The poor fox had been there for quite a while, but firefighters assisted the volunteer who managed to free it without too much bother. He was taken into the care of the wildlife hospital where he’s doing really well and they hope to release him this week.
