Cat rescued from drowning

Firefighters using a ladder had to go down, rather than up, to rescue a stranded cat last night.

The mischievous moggy found itself stuck down an embankment only inches from the River Lune in Water Street, Lancaster.

Passers-by called 999 and firefighters used a triple extension ladder to reach the pet and pluck it to safety.

The animal was unhurt.
