Firefighters assisted police to rescue a nest of birds that had become stuck inside a metal post in Northampton
Brackmills Police Community Support Officer Paul Hurst, of Northamptonshire Police, was patrolling on Old Bedford Road yesterday evening (June 15) when he was approached by members of the pubic. They informed him that four birds had become trapped after their nest had dropped to the bottom of a metal post.
PCSO Hurst then called the Northamptonshire Fire and Rescue Service, who then sent crews from Mereway Fire Station to the scene at 6.44pm.
