After a woman was saved by a police dog in Northfield in the early hours of this morning, Inspector Russ Evans from West Midlands Police Dogs Unit said:
"Our dogs are highly trained and are able to follow a scent over long distances, in all sorts of conditions - so when someone is in grave danger, they really can make the difference between life and death."
Police dog Ska, along with handler PC Keith Bennett, was called in to help locate the woman when police were alerted to concerns over her welfare.
