Firefighters Free Trapped Hedgehog

Hedgehog Stuck in Gate

A hedgehog's been rescued after getting stuck in a gate in Newmarket.

The RSPCA were called after a passer-by spotted the animal on Sunday 14 June.

He was stuck so tightly that firefighters had to stretch the metal railings to free him.

A few of his spines were left squashed but after a night with the RSPCA the animal's been returned to the wild.

RSPCA inspector Richard Lythgoe said: "It is hard to imagine how this little thing got himself into such a tight squeeze.

"I can only imagine he misjudged the width of the bars - or perhaps did not see them clearly as hedgehogs are short-sighted."
