Black contacted the South Wales Fire & Rescue Service and a crew arrived with a hydraulic platform to reach the roof of the building.

Meuzza was placed in a carrier and brought back down to earth. Black said the cat was reunited with his owner.

"It was a lovely moment to reunite Meuzza with his owner. He seems to have settled back in at home despite such a hair-raising climb," she said.
