The RSPCA has released its 10 most bizarre animal rescues of 2016 - including a sheep with a traffic cone stuck on its head and a snake trapped in a vacuum cleaner.

A spokesman for the animal charity said: "Animals really do the funniest things. But sometimes, they need a little help getting themselves out of the trouble they find themselves in and the RSPCA is always there to help."
