'BONKERS! More than 20 Suffolk firefighters rescue cat from tree' says the EDP today, which is difficult to disagree with. After reporting the stuck cat, Teresa Saunders from Leiston was amazed that amongst the other fire fighters called was a turntable ladder from Bury St Edmunds some 60 miles away. Day out for the under used piece of high tech kit? No, health and safety. Apparently our fire crews are too clumsy to climb a ladder over a one storey height. Good job that it wasn't needed for a real emergency as the Ipswich rig was out of action. In fact a local retained firefighter shot up a normal ladder and freed the moggy.
Chris Bishop reports in the EDP that bats can be spotted on organised walks in, er, The Walks and around the Red Mount Chapel in King's Lynn.
Donkeys at the Little Tinkers Donkey Sanctuary in Norwich are at a loss after their space hoppers were stolen, reports BBC Norfolk. Unfortunately they don't bounce on them, which as every child knows is impossible anyway, but pick them up by the rubbery horns and kick them around in impromptu games of footie.
