Bella and her owner, who was not the person who tried to rescue Bella, were then reunited and posed for a photographer with firefighters.

A spokesperson for Cambridgeshire Fire and Rescue Service said: “We know that people love animals and would risk their own lives to save a family pet or other animal in distress. Our advice would always be to avoid putting yourself in danger and to contact the RSPCA in the first instance.”
