Firefighters and the RSPCA helped rescue a lucky black cat from a car engine in Elm Park.
Cherub, a black cat was chased by a dog in Woodlane, Elm Park at around 1pm on Wednesday, September 19.

Much to the owner’s relief, Cherub eventually found her way out of the engine and was unharmed.
Paul Dykes was part of the team that helped rescue Cherub. He told the Recorder that he it wasn’t one of the typical calls they get.
