FIREFIGHTERS were called in to help rescue a dog.

North Yorkshire Fire and Rescue say they were called out at just before 11pm last night (November 21) to Fylingdales near Whitby.

A spokesman for the service said they were called in to assist and helped reunite the dog with its grateful owner.

The spokesman said: "A crew from Robin Hood's Bay and an animal rescue unit from Malton responded to a report of a dog that become stuck.

"When they arrived on the scene they found that the Pyrenean mountain dog had become stuck at the bottom of a steep incline.

"The crews were able to rescue the dog and reunited it with its owners to await the arrival of the vet to check for any possible injuries."
