Firefighters had to rescue a Tawny owl when it became tangled in fishing wire on the River Derwent in Duffield.

The creature was found hanging over the water at around 2.50pm on Thursday, April 4 near Duffield Bank.

A fire crew from Kingway in Derby used inflatable rescue equipment to reach and release the bird, which was still alive, before leaving it in the care of the RSPCA.
