Dog rescued from disused mine shaft

Bridewell Lane, Banwell

Firefighters have rescued a dog after it fell around 15 metres down a disused mine shaft.

The owner had been walking the animal when it became stuck.

Crews from Weston-super-Mare and Temple’s rope rescue team were called to the scene.

Using Safe Working at Height (SHACS) equipment and lines, crews assisted the animal, called Reggie, to safety. He was then taken to a vet to be checked over.
