FIREFIGHTERS rescued a pigeon caught in a tree last night. 

At around 8pm a crew from Bracknell Fire Station were called to Manston Drive by an officer of the The Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.

There they found a bird stuck in the branches by a length of fishing line. 

Watch manager Steve Borham said: "We rescued a pigeon from a tree.

"We used a ladder, some harness and working at height equipment.

"We cut the branch down and it fell out of the tree. The bird was alive.

"It had a bit of a headache. It took us a while to stop laughing. I promise this happened."

The fire fighters were there for around 20 minutes in total. 

The bird is believed to be in good health.
