Andover’s Firemen were called into action earlier today when a pigeon was reported as being trapped in the netting above Barclay Bank in the High Street in Andover.

Due to the height, the fire brigade had to use their ladder to free the trapped bird however after a successful rescue, the pigeon was handed over to the RSPCA.

  • Sorry but its a pigeon!! Is that really effective use of time and money?
    The net did its job and stopped of the blighters breeding as if we don’t have enough of the vermin in our town center…should of called Rentoklil not the Fire Brigade!!!

  • what a waste of public services. id rather pay them to drink tea than the money wasted (air pistol, sorted)

  • Nice spectacle though.

    And notice we’re not blaming the fireman (thank goodness). They remain a symbol of “rescue” (hence why they were called to rescue a pigeon) besides, who else has a huge ladder!?
