Station Manager Andy Walton, who is at the scene said, “We’ve were called by the RSPCA and fire crews were there to ensure the safety of RSPCA officers. The RSPCA officers safely caught the seal in a noose and placed it on a rescue mat. With the help of firefighters the seal was carried via a pedestrian bridge into an animal ambulance. The rescue was a success and the watching public clapped from the banks of the river.”

The Fire Brigade was called at 9.52am and the incident was over at 11.35am. Two fire engines and two fire rescue units were at the scene.
