Five-week-old Dusty was spotted with her head stuck in the hole of an industrial bin on the car park at Hailes Park Close, Wolverhampton.

Inspectors from the RSPCA said it was "absolutely unbelievable" the kitten emerged unscathed following the rescue operation.

Crews from West Midlands Fire Service used a small plastic collar smothered in lubricant to get her out, with one firefighter stepping inside to keep her steady while the rescue took place.

RSPCA inspector Steve Morrall told the BBC: "She got her head stuck through a very tiny hole which is a drainage hole at the bottom of the bin, so tight in fact that we were unable to manipulate or get her out without fire brigade assistance.

"She's a very lucky cat when you see the images of where she was stuck. It's absolutely unbelievable that she's come off without any injuries.

"We're looking really to rehome her. She's got a clean bill of health and incredibly no injuries from her little escapade this morning."
