MARCH: Dog ditch drama

A St Bernard had to be rescued from a ditch in March yesterday (Tuesday) after getting stuck.

Two fire crews and a rescue vehicle were called to Lambs Hill Drove at 12.55pm after the large dog got stuck in the shallow ditch and the owner could not lift it out.

The owner had it on a lead but could not physically lift the dog out of the ditch and so it became stuck.

Firefighters rescued the dog and returned to their stations by 1.30pm.
