Daisy the cocker spaniel became stuck after disappearing down a drain on Saturday night in Church Road, Buckworth near Huntingdon.

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, before being re-united with her worried owners at about 10.50pm.
