LFB Firefighters have rescued a baby fox that had its head stuck in a wall on Holland Road in Sutton, last week.

Firefighter John Griffin who was at the scene, said:

An extension was being built at the back of the property and a family of foxes had got in under the floor. There was a hole in one of the breeze blocks and the cub had got its head stuck.

We covered the fox over with a towel and chiselled the wall around it and as soon as it was free it ran straight back under the floor boards.

The operation took 33 minutes.

LFB’s report of last week’s rescue follows news from the London Ambulance Service yesterday that they’ve been called to treat a patient (human) whose head had been stuck down a drain.
