A Nelson fire crew was on hand to rescue a pair of stranded ducklings.

Firefighters were called out to the vicinity of the former Spring Bank Hotel in Manchester Road, Nelson, at just after 1pm on Saturday.

The ducklings were going quackers after becoming stuck under a drain cover but fortunately the firefighters stuck their beaks in at the right moment to save the day and reunited the unharmed ducklings with their parents.
