Kent Fire and Rescue Service was called yesterday, 23 October, to reports that a pet cat had become stuck on a ledge in the Railway Tunnels, Marina Esplanade in Ramsgate.

Crews were alerted to the cat by the RSPCA – who couldn’t reach the animal due it being 18 metres high on the ledge.

A height vehicle was sent to the scene along with the fire service Line Rescue team which abseiled down to the ledge to rescue the cat.

The animal was then handed to the RSPCA.

KFRS will always respond to rescue an animal where there is a risk to the life of people involved.
