Fire crews were called to rescue a seagull from a roof on Taunton High Street this morning.
Crews tried to rescue the trapped seagull twice this morning unsuccessfully before finally using hydraulic equipment to save the bird
Fire crews were called to rescue a pigeon stuck in netting on a roof in Taunton High Street this morning
One fire appliance from Taunton was called after members of the public reported a seagull stuck in netting on a three storey high roof this morning.
At around 11.55am crews located the seagull and attempted to rescue it by gaining access to the roof with a ladder.
This proved too difficult so crews tried to gain access via a roof space in a nearby property. This attempt was also unsuccessful.
After two failed attempts, crews went back to the station to get their hydraulic platform, and third time lucky, they rescued the seagull.
