RSPCA Inspector Andy Eddy said: “When I arrived this poor fox was distressed and exhausted from struggling to escape with no success.


“I think he must have tried to jump up through a glass plate to the top level and bounced back and had fallen with his head down the edge of the side rail."

He added; “Thankfully, he was spotted before it was too late and I was able to carefully lift him out.

"He had a swollen throat and was unsteady but with a bit of TLC at a wildlife hospital he’ll be fine and be able to be released back into the wild where he belongs.”
