Fire crews have rescued a cat trapped in a car engine in West Yorkshire.

The cat got stuck in an engine compartment in a car in Duke Street, Ravensthorpe, Dewsbury.

It was lodged between the wheel arch and the fan belt.

Fire crews from Cleckheaton attended alongside a specialist Technical Rescue Officer.

The crews safely removed the cat.

It has since been happily reunited with its owner.

This isn't the first time a cat has gotten trapped in a car before.

Last year we reported on a cat called Ford, who was travelled 80 miles while wedged in the air vent on a family car.
