A curious cat had a lucky escape after it got stuck upside-down behind a bathroom wall.

Firefighters freed the feline after it followed its owner into the loft and fell into a soil stack void.

Crews used specialist cutting equipment to release the pet from the family home in Wilburton.

Cambridgeshire Fire & Rescue Service said that "other than feeling a little embarrassed", the cat was doing well and had not been injured.
