Felixstowe: Firefighters rescue dog stuck on roof in Priory Road

16:03 13 April 2014

Archant

Firefighters in Felixstowe were called to an unusual emergency this morning – a dog which had got stuck on a roof.

The animal had found its way out onto the roof of a chalet bungalow in Priory Road, and then discovering how high up it was, the animal had froze – and was unable to move.

One fire crew from Felixstowe attended the incident at 9.26am with officers using a short extension ladder to reach the pet and bring him down to the ground.

The dog was safe with his owners again by 10.07am.

  • The dog is an absolute menace. It should be put down for acting like this. It is not normal!!

Services could move from Colchester General Hospital to Ipswich Hospital, or vice versa.

Services at Colchester and Ipswich hospitals could merge where there is “a clinical case to do so” – but neither hospital will close.
