A chicken got itself into a flap when it became trapped down a well - only to be rescued by plucky firefighters.

A crew from Barnoldswick were called to assist in rescuing the ruffled chicken which had gotten stuck on a ledge down a well near Manchester Road and Castle View.

The firefighters were able to assist in safely rescuing the animal and returning it to its owners using a triple extension ladder.
