A fire and rescue crew from Derbyshire had an unusual rescue mission this morning when a deer found itself stuck in railings.
The crew from Alfreton Community Fire Station were called out in the early hours of this morning (Monday, May 13) to rescue this Roebuck Deer from railings within a residential street in the area.


A spokesman for the service said: “Early call for Alfreton Blue Watch, a Roe Buck Deer caught his rear legs in railings.
“Blue Watch were able to release the legs and carry him to a footpath leading to the countryside and back to his nearest and deer-est.”
