Firefighters had a bizarre call-out this morning (Saturday) to rescue a stranded pet.

Devon and Somerset Fire and Rescue received an emergency call just after 10.45am to attend a house in Bideford.

There, firefighters had to rescue a dog which was stuck on a conservatory roof in Pynes Lane.

A fire service spokesman said: “The fire service were called to a dog stuck on a conservatory roof.

“One crew from Bideford attended.

“The crews used lines and an extension ladder to rescue the dog.”
