Shortly after 8:30am this morning, the SARA WF crew were asked to provide mutual assistance to West Mercia Search & Rescue with an ongoing missing person search in the Coalport area; also in attendance were Staffordshire Search and Rescue. We would like to thank Blists Hill Victorian Town Ironbridge and
Telford Hotel & Golf Resort for their assistance during today’s search and the The Half Moon pub for allowing us to use the carpark as a base.

Asked to assist RSPCA with an animal rescue in Redditch.
A slightly different call out for the Wyre Forest Station crew this afternoon. Shortly after 3pm, we were contacted by Hereford & Worcester Fire and Rescue Service Control to assist the RSPCA (England & Wales) with a bird rescue in Arrow Valley Park.
Due to access restrictions and to minimise stress to the bird, the crew deployed one of our rescue sleds and were able to cut the fishing line that was tangling the Egret in a tree about 8ft above the water. Returning to the shore with the Egret, it was taken by the RSPCA to get checked over. We have heard that there appears to be no injury to the bird and is due to be released soon.
