A man who tried to rescue a cat stuck on the roof of a Princes Risborough house ended up needing a helping hand to get down.

A fire crew were called to Cannon Place at 12.55pm today (Thursday).

Firefighters used a short extension ladder and a roof ladder to get to the man and cat.

They were both brought down from the roof uninjured.

A Bucks Fire and Rescue Service spokesman said: “In a situation like that where there is a cat stuck on a roof the first port of call should be to ring the RSPCA.”
