Suffolk Fire and Rescue Service was called to reports of an animal rescue at a home in Lapwings off Leiston Road in Aldeburgh just before 8.30am on Thursday.

The RSPCA advised the fire crews to leave the chick where it was as it was not physically trapped. 

The crews were also advised not to go near the nest as gulls can be aggressive. 

A stop time for the incident was called at 9.53am.
