A polecat has been rescued by the RSPCA after falling into a 15ft drain.
The animal was trapped in the drain at the sewerage treatment works in Creech St Michael, near Taunton.
A worker spotted the animal and contacted the RSPCA.
RSPCA animal collection officer Clara Scully says the polecat had been trapped for at least 24 hours.
Ms Scully says she was unable to go down into the drain because of the poor weather conditions so she contacted the fire and rescue service.
