A DEER which had become stuck in railings was rescued by firefighters in Rowley Regis.

Firefighters from Haden Cross Station in Cradley Heath went to help the Muntjac deer which had got itself stuck in Gorsty Hill Road 10.25am on Friday (November 13).

They cut it free using a power saw and released it into a nearby back garden which had access to woodland.

A member of the public called the fire brigade about what they thought was a fox which had become stuck in railings.

A spokesman for West Midlands Fire Service said: "We sent one of our 4x4 rescue vehicles with three firefighters from Haden Cross.

"The deer was freed by 11.15am.

"After taking advice from the RSPCA the deer was released into a back garden in the area which had access to woodland."

Haden Cross fire station tweeted a picture of the deer.
