It was a case of battening down the hutches in Northern Ireland after Storm Gertrude blew a pet rabbit up on to a roof.

Firefighters were called to rescue the startled animal in Omagh, Co Tyrone on Friday morning.

The gale force winds literally swept the rabbit off its paws and deposited it high up on a house roof in the Deverney Road area of the town.

A team from Omagh Fire Station used ladders and a water rescue pole to bring the rabbit back to terra firma.

The rescue operation took almost 45 minutes.
