Brave Firemen Rescue Ickle Duckling

If you're also too hot to be dealing with real news, we bring you the heartwarming tale of the scared wickle duckling that got tangled up in fishing line in Crystal Palace lake yesterday evening. Worried the fluffy birdie would starve after their own attempts to reach it failed, the RSPCA called the fire brigade. The plucky firefighters risked life and limb, using a boat and a net to fish the blighter out of the water. On another day we might ask why the RSPCA couldn't get a boat, but our hard-hitting investigative journalism skills are wilting. We're just pleased Quackers is safe. (Image / left-hand)
