Some will say there is a reason stereotypes exist, and firefighters from Wimbledon aren't doing much to disprove that.

But in this case, that isn't such a bad thing.

It was all smiles for the London Fire Brigade crew from Wimbledon today as they managed to rescue a cat that had been trapped in ducting for an agonising four days.

They took to social media to share the good news and reassure people that despite the long wait for help, the cat is "doing well."

I guess it's also true what they say about cats having nine lives.
