The RSPCA has rescued an 'embarrassed' fox.

Builders found the animal with its head stuck in the flooring of an office at the University of Hertfordshire's de Havilland campus in Hatfield.

The charity believes that the fox had become stuck under the floor and noticed a hole, thinking it to be a possible escape.

However, although the creature was able to get his head through the hole, his body was too big to fit through.

The animal welfare officer from the RSPCA, Kate Wright, admitted she was greeted by a "very odd sight" when she arrived.

She said: "Here was this fox's head poking out of a floor and he was so jammed he couldn't move, and I just had these big eyes staring at me.

"I actually think he had quite an embarrassed expression on his face."

The builders were able to help with the rescue, using crowbars to lift the floorboards as Wright gently set the animal's head free and transferred it to a cage, before it was taken to be released back into the wild again.

Wright added: "He was a beautiful fox, and although his neck was slightly swollen from being stuck, I think it was his pride that was hurt more than anything as he had been outfoxed by a hole.

"He ran off into the wild, and it was great to think that this was a successful rescue, even though it was one of the more unusual I have had to deal with."
