Firefighters come to the rescue of trapped dog

Lewes firefighters came to the rescue of a dog trapped underneath a car.

Crews were called out at 8.10am on 8thDecember to Lewes Road, Ringmer, where they found a dog in distress under a Renault Clio.

The animal had received injuries to its rear but thankfully a quick-thinking member of the public had jacked up the car to remove some of the pressure on the dog before crews arrived.

High pressure air bags were used by firefighters to lift the car, then the vehicle was stabilised, using blocks, and the dog was successfully rescued. The injured dog was then transported to the local vets.

The road had to be closed for around half an hour while crews worked at the scene.
