The bird was tangled in a fishing line hanging over a river. The crew first tried unhooking the bird with a long pole. When that didn’t work they got in a raft to try a river rescue. Finally one firefighter cut the gull free but it dropped into the water. A crowd of onlookers gasped as the exhausted bird floated away. It was then plucked to safety at the River Welland in Stamford, Lincs, and taken to a sanctuary. (Feb 2007) —Photo credit not given in article
