A kitten has had a lucky escape after firefighters rescued it from behind a kitchen unit in a Godmanchester home.

Cambridgeshire Fire and Rescue Service was called out on Monday at about 9.50am to reports that a kitten had become trapped.

A crew from Huntingdon arrived at a house in Butchers Drive and, using small cutting equipment, managed to bring the kitten to safety.

A spokesman for the fire service said that the kitten was unharmed and left in the arms of its owners.

The fire crews returned to their stations by 10.15am.
