A cocker spaniel puppy was rescued from a wall by fire crews.

Violet, 10 months, got her head wedged in a gap in Northumberland Park, Erith, and had to be freed with a hydraulic tool.

She'd been exploring her garden and was trying to have a sneak peek into the neighbour's property when she became trapped.

Firefighters comforted the inquisitive pet while removing bricks and once she was liberated she ran around and jumped up to all the firefighters like she was thanking them.

One crew from Erith Fire Station attended just before 7pm on Monday and spent an hour at the scene.

Sub Officer Ross Dixey, who attended the scene, said: “The puppy, called Violet, was only 10 months old and being rather inquisitive put her head through a small space in a brick wall to look into her neighbour’s property.

“She got herself stuck and firefighters comforted her as they used hydraulic spreaders and removed bricks to free her.

“As soon as she was free she ran around and jumped up to each individual firefighter as though she was thanking them.”
