A rabbit has been seen stuck on a building ledge in Nottingham City Centre five meters above ground.

London Road Fire Station team attended the scene at approximately 2pm today in an attempt to rescue the rabbit from the ledge of the building.

The stranded bunny was seen on a ledge in Burton Street, just around the corner from Nottingham Trent University’s Newton building.

CBJ Star sent a reporter to the scene but unfortunately, the London Road fire service had already left the scene.

An hour later the press office has now commented that they had to give up after the rabbit disappeared into a void in the building.

RSPCA have been called to attend the scene later today in attempts to rescue the stranded bunny.


An RSPCA spokesperson said: “We were called to reports that a wild rabbit was on a ledge – about five metres off the ground – of the Student Roost building in Trinity Square, Nottingham, today. We have no idea how he managed to get up there.

“Nottinghamshire Fire Service assisted us with their ladders in trying to reach the rabbit, which appeared to be in good health. However, the rabbit kept running into a roof void which firefighters were unable to access.

“After about three hours we could no longer locate the rabbit and we are not sure if he made his way safely down the building.

“After spending time searching for him, the decision was made to leave the scene but return if further sightings of the rabbit were made to us.

“We have received a report that the rabbit has made his way down to the first floor of a nearby multi-storey car park but is in an enclosed area which the caller is unable to access. We will be sending an officer to safely catch the rabbit and make sure he is OK.”
