A raccoon named Axl needed AA assistance after getting stuck behind his owner's dashboard.
Named after the Guns N' Roses frontman, the nine-week-old procyonid was some way from his native North America when he got stuck - Winchester Services on the M3. Axl escaped from a cat carrier and found a new temporary home when his owners stopped for coffee.
AA trainee patrolman Jamie Clowes failed in his initial attempts to coax the raccoon out with a Penguin biscuit. A short blast from his air compressor proved more fruitful.
