Firefighters took part in an unusual rescue in Aylesbury this morning (Monday) after a cat got stuck in the engine compartment of a car.

Airbags and a toolkit were used to release the animal which was uninjured.

It had managed to get stuck in the engine compartment of a car parked on a driveway in Walton Road and firefighters had to be called out at 11.30am to come to its aid.

A sign of the fact that the animal was unharmed was that it ran away before firefighters could take a photo out of it.

However they have released an extract from their control room log from the initial call when they were alerted to the incident.

They wrote: ‘Cat stuck in engine bay of car - can see tail near side front wheel’
