Casper the cat found himself in wheelie big trouble when he got his head stuck in the middle of a tyre.

Fire crews in Suffolk had to cut the stray Siamese free after a passer-by spotted him struggling to escape his new tight tyre-collar.

He may look calm here, but Casper was pretty scared and kept scratching and biting his rescuers as they tried to chip away at the wheel.

It took nearly an hour, but eventually Casper was freed and amazingly the only injury he had was a bit of a sore neck.

There's no place like home! Casper looked pretty happy to be settled in his own cage before being whisked off to recover under the care of an RSPCA officer.
