A pet hamster, trapped in a tiny pipe for six days, has been freed thanks to a small wire ladder.

The hamster, Jamie, got stuck in the pipe during an escape from his cage in Bridgwater, reported BBC News.

The RSPCA was called when several attempts to rescue him failed.

Alison Sparkes, from the RSPCA, said: “I cut a metre-long ladder from old wire mesh, fitted it in the pipe, and that evening he emerged”.
