Injured seagull on balcony in Cardiff rescued by fire crew

The injured bird was rescued following a request from the RSPCA

A seagull stranded on a city centre balcony since Christmas Day has been rescued by fire crews.

The injured bird was plucked from the 4th floor of Meridian Plaza Central in Cardiff at 10:15 GMT on Sunday.

A spokeswoman for South Wales Fire and Rescue said it would not normally attend such a call out but it followed a request from animal charity the RSPCA.

The seagull is now being cared for by a wildlife charity in Newport.
