A labradoodle has been rescued after getting stuck down a well near Eastleigh this morning.

"Lily is one lucky dog as she landed on a log around 2m down, when the well is likely to have been a lot deeper than that.

"The extendable tools we now have thankfully meant I could get her out relatively easily on my own.

"But there is a lot of emotion involved in rescues like this for the owners, often as much as any house fire. It's important they call specialists like us to deal with them, rather than try to carry out the rescue themselves and create an even bigger problem."
