Firefighters rescued a hedgehog from a prickly situation when it got stuck upside down in a drain.
The spiky creature - now nicknamed fireman Sam - was discovered by last Thursday in Chatham, after people heard its screams.
When realising he was stuck down the drain in Ward View, and they couldn't reach him, they headed to the nearby fire station for help.
Crew members managed to wedge Sam out, who was stuck around 2ft down.
He was then taken to Medway Hedgehog Rescue and given a medicated bath and fluids as he was dehydrated, and he is currently on the mend.
Kelly Smith, who runs the rescue, said: "On arrival he has a big swollen grazed forehead, and the infection had just started to set in.
"He was given a medicated bath and some subcutaneous fluids as he was dehydrated. He was also given antibiotics and pain relief.
"He ate a little overnight, and the swelling went down the next morning and he was up and walking.
"So a huge thank you to the firefighters from Chatham fire station - you are all amazing."
