She said: "He was found in the goal netting and Inkberrow Primary school this morning by a young boy who saw him and alerted staff.

"He wasn't easy to see as he was at the bottom of the playing fields. It took 20 minutes to carefully cut him free as it was tight around his neck and feet.

"He has no injuries or breaks and will be released after a rest. He is now upstanding and very alert and has eaten."
