Squirrel stuck in dashboard rescued by firefighters

Firefighters in Cheshire have rescued a squirrel which got trapped behind the dashboard of a car.

The squirrel was found injured at the side of the road in the - appropriately named - town of Knutsford and two women put her in a basket and headed towards the local animal rescue centre.

But during their journey the squirrel escaped, scurried under the seat and up a hole behind the glove box.

With the help of a snake eye camera, the firefighters located the animal, removed the dashboard safely and rescued the rodent.

Hazel, as they named her, is now recovering before being returned to the wild
