TWO young animals thought they were ‘ferret’ last night after becoming stranded on rocks off the coast of Cambois last night.
The ferret’s anxious owners had made desperate attempts to save their animals by wading into the sea on the Cambois bay rocks, just south of Newbiggin, but their best endeavours looked likely to be scuppered when neither Tootsie or Lucky responded.
With a desperate 999 call to the Humber coastguard a request to Newbiggin lifeboat to divert from their training exercise was made.
1. Is that second graf the most British thing you’ve ever read or what?
2. I would consider renaming “Lucky” in light of the events.
3. Newbiggin is the name of my Hot Fuzz tribute film.
