They used a range of specialist tools to help Roger escape and reunite him with his owner. 

A spokesperson for London Fire Brigade said: “Firefighters love animals too and we are ready, willing, and able to assist distressed or injured animals, the last thing we want is for people to put themselves at risk rescuing an animal themselves

“We do encourage people to call the RSPCA in the first instance and we will assist if our specialist equipment is required, as in this case.”
