The female parrot named Jesse, who could not descend from the roof of a house in London, swore at came to the aid of firefighters.

Other unusual creatures the London Fire Brigade have recently lent a hand to include an iguana stuck on a roof, a kitten trapped in a bongo drum, and a chimp wedged in a chimney.

It soon became clear that Jessie was not injured.

A "foul-mouthed" parrot launched a four-letter tirade at a firefighter as he tried to rescue the bird from a neighbour's roof in north London.

Before heading up the ladder, Jessie's owner told the firefighter to say "I love you" to her in an attempt to gain her trust, but the parrot clearly didn't reciprocate his feelings. After she finished excoriating her rescuer the bird simply flew off towards its owner.

Neither her owner nor an RSPCA volunteer was able to convince her to come down, so the fire brigade was called. "We were told that to bond with the parrot, you have to tell her 'I love you, ' which is exactly what the crew manager did".

Franklin won 18 Grammy awards and in 1987 she became the first woman inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame . She was diagnosed with cancer eight years ago in 2010 and last year announced her retirement from music.

Watch Manager Chris Swallow was anxious Jessie was injured because she hadn't come back down after so many days. But Jessie is no ordinary person, nor is she person at all.

Swallow said that in instances like this pet owners should always contact the RSPCA before the emergency services.

She had a special message for the brigade, which her owner recorded on video once the macaw was home, safe and sound. Jessie returned home uninjured after her long weekend several stories up.

The amusing exchange between Jessie and the firefighter was shared on Twitter by the London Fire Brigade's official account.

'If the RSPCA require our assistance, they will call us and we are happy to assist with our specialist equipment'.
