A dog had a lucky escape after getting stuck in a drain pipe in a Huntingdonshire field.
Daisy the cocker spaniel was rescued by firefighters in Church Road, Buckworth, last Saturday (October 3) just before 8pm.
The pooch had to be located using specialist cameras due to it getting dark so quickly.
A Cambridgeshire Fire and Rescue Service spokesperson said: “Working with onsite farmers and a digger who excavated to the pipe, firefighters worked to locate the dog using a thermal imaging camera and snake eye camera.
“Daisy was rescued form the last section of the pipe, and reunited with her very grateful owners.”
