Three fire engines have been sent to rescue a seagull stuck in a tree.
The fire service was called to help the RSPCA after reports the bird had got trapped near Norwich Market just after 3pm on Wednesday.
Firefighters used an aerial platform ladder to free the bird, which was taken into the care of the RSPCA.
Stefan Rider, incident commander, told the Norwich Evening News: "We sent one fire engine out then, because of the location and for safety, we had to call out the aerial platform ladder.
"The third fire engine is for the remainder of the crew to support the aerial platform ladder.
"We share funding with the RSPCA and have an agreement that they will only call us if they are confident that an animal needs our assistance."
