This squirrel needed a helping hand after getting stuck in a hole in a Leamington garden.

RSPCA Inspector Elizabeth Boyd was called to the stricken animal at a property on Sunday afternoon (April 11).

She said: “The little squirrel had pushed his way into a hole in the ground, probably in search of food, but then got stuck underneath a wooden post.

“The post is supporting an outdoor structure but they were happy for me to saw the post to create some extra space so he could wriggle free and he darted off*.”
