Firemen sent to save a kitten stranded on a ledge below a sheer drop into a river drain tried every trick in the book to pluck him to safety. … Having resolutely ignored dangling ropes that had been dipped in pet food, he suddenly leapt into the icy waters of Lincoln’s Sincil Drain. Then, as firefighters, RSPCA officials and council worked watched helplessly, he paddled along to a ladder bracketed to the drain wall. Yelled on by a rapt crowd, he emerged from the water and started to climb 20ft up the rusting rungs – surviving several alarming slips on the way.
