Firefighters rescued a cat which was impaled on a metal fence.
A crew from Leigh Fire Station attended Kenneth Road, Thundersley today at 4.36am after a resident heard the cat in distress and called 999.
Crew Manager Chris Seal said: "One of the cat's back legs had been impaled by a metal spike above a side gate.
"We used our cutting tools to remove the spike just below the point of entry. The resident gave us a crate to put the cat in and we took it to a vet.
"It is always horrible to see an animal in distress so we were pleased that we were able to release it quickly."
Crews rescued the cat, which had a microchip, at 5.11am.
