A crew freed it using cutting equipment and a air bags.

Sub Officer Gary Shinn said: "We believe the pig was on a concrete step and went for a scratch and ended up falling over and getting wedged upside down.

"Olive was really stuck, it wasn't a simple of case of pulling her free.

"We had to use cutting equipment to free her and although distressed at first, she calmed down after a little stroke.

"The owner was very pleased to be reunited with Olive.

"We've been to a few animal rescues, but never a pig."
