On Saturday, four tattooists were searching for somewhere to set up camp in Wrexham, North Wales, when they stumbled upon a little lamb trapped inside a tree. The heroes of the hour were Grant Hoffman, 27, who owns Inkredible tattoo shop in Wythenshawe, and his friends Sammy Stapleton, 36, Jason Ratcliffe, 28, and Nathan Reilly, 21.
The men sprung into action in order to free the terrified lamb who was wedged in by sticks and unable to break free.
Mr Hoffman told Manchester Evening News: “We had to sort of push its head back for it to be able to get round the sticks and out. But we didn’t want to hurt it, so we had to be really careful.
“At first, once it was free it ran off from us, but then when it realised there was nobody to run to, it came back to us.”

After the lamb was released, the men picked it up and walked towards a hill to see if they could find some other sheep.
Mr Hoffman continued: “We came across a group of sheep. There was one there with a couple of lambs and she did not want to know. Then straight away there was another one on her own and once the lamb started bleating she was coming towards us.
“We had to take the lamb a bit closer and he knew we were trying to help him. Eventually they went off together.
