A FOX was rescued by firefighters after it was found with its head stuck on the wheel of a car.
The fox became trapped in the Volkswagen vehicle when it was parked in the driveway of a house on Ward Avenue, Grays.
Fire crews were called by the RSPCA to release the fox on Friday, 14 December.
It took crews nearly 45 minutes to free the fox from the car wheel. Officers lifted the car using a jack before the wheel, with the fox’s head trapped inside, was removed. Once freed, the fox was taken by the RSPCA.
An RSPCA spokeswoman said: “The fox was rescued by the RSPCA and the fire brigade and trotted off.”
