Dog rescued from underground concrete pipe

Greenhill Road, Sandford, Winscombe

Crews were called to rescue a small dog that had been trapped for three hours in an underground pipe.

The Jack Russell dog was trapped in an eight feet concrete pipe, two feet underground.

The intensive rescue took around 40 minutes and required firefighters to dig down to the pipe and break it along its length to reach the exhausted dog.

Happily the relieved owner, who had been with crews throughout the rescue, was reunited with her dog, Jasper.

Three crews attended the incident, two from Bedminster and retained firefighters from Winscome.
