Firefighters rescue hefty hedgehog wedged in gate

A plump hedgehog who got stuck in a gate in Austria had to be cut free by firefighters using heavy-duty equipment.

It got trapped in an awkward position half way after trying to wriggle through the bottom bars.

Graz fire brigade used hydraulic claws, normally used to help cut people out of cars, to prise apart the bars of the gate.

An angle grinder then sliced through the gate and freed the hedgehog from its prickly predicament.
