A deer has been rescued after getting trapped in fencing at a railway station in Cornwall.

Officers from Falmouth were called to Penryn train station this morning after a deer had managed to lodge its head in a fence and became trapped.

Police said that the animal was very distressed and had to be held and calmed by officers to avoid further injury.

A vet was called to sedate the deer and Falmouth fire crews were brought in to cut the fence. In fact spreaders seemed to do the trick.

The deer was eventually freed and - after a check over by the vet - was released back to the wild.
