Five firefighters from Buckinghamshire and Milton Keynes Fire Authority spent around six hours rescuing a dog that got stuck down a drain.
Station manager Dough Gruchy said they decided to attend as they had concerns for the safety of the dog owner's rescue party.
It is quite understandable that an owner, when faced with a situation like this, will want to go to extraordinary lengths to save a pet.
Lulu's owner had organised her own search, but the situation was in danger of becoming hazardous. We took the decision to carry out this rescue because of our concern for the safety of her search party as well as for Lulu’s welfare. We are obviously delighted that it has had a happy ending.
