Station Manager Douglas Gruchy and Firefighter Chris Coverley describe the rescue of Lulu. The dog spent four days underground.
A dog has been reunited with its owner in Buckinghamshire after getting stuck in a drain for five days.
Gina Kaiser brought in a JCB to rescue her pet pooch after the terrier became trapped in a drainage pipe. Lulu disappeared down the unused pipe while she was out for a walk in Dorney.
Rubble blocked her exit and she was trapped, surviving on just a trickle of water for nearly a week. Eventually, Gina was so desperate to be reunited with her pet that she hired a JCB to cut Lulu free. Luckily, a fire service rescue team were passing and stepped in to help.
They used cutting equipment, the digger and shovels to dig down 8ft and six hours later Lulu was reunited with her owner.
