A trapped seagull has closed one of the major routes through Bristol city centre during rush hour.
Avon Fire and Rescue are currently on the scene in Baldwin Street with a turntable ladder to rescue the bird trapped in netting high above the street.
The fire brigade have confirmed that they were asked to attend the seagull by the RSPCA.
Long delays built up in the city centre and in the area immediately surrounding.
The road reopened at about 9:40am.
