Sutton-in-Ashfield man scales 45ft tree to rescue parrot

A man says he climbed a 45ft tree armed with custard creams to retrieve his runaway parrot.

Chris Phelan, from Sutton-in-Ashfield, Nottinghamshire, said his pet Caesar flew off while being transported to his outside cage.

He said "probably 200 people" were looking for the parrot - who had been missing for two days - before the dramatic rescue.
