Owners of paddling pooches enjoying the sunshine are being reminded of the dangers of open water after a dog had to be rescued from a pond.
Crews from Dogsthorpe and Stanground were called to Park Farm in Stanground at 9.43am today to reports of a dog stuck in a pond. The upset owner was safely waiting on the bank and was able to direct crews to the incident.
Crew Commander Gareth Boyd, Dogsthorpe blue watch, said: “We would like to urge dog owners to keep their pets on a lead at all times – even in this hot weather.
“If your animal does get into trouble, do not try and rescue it yourself.
“Please keep yourself safe and dial 999 with as much information as possible about your location.”
