Neighbours and passersby cheered as firemen on an aerial platform retrieved the stranded cat from the roof on St George's Avenue, off Kingsley Road.

The operation was mounted after residents called the RSPCA with concerns that the helpless kitten had been stuck since Sunday night (June 26).

One neighbour said: "I just don't how he got up there. I don't think he knows either."
