The alarm was raised just before 10.30am on Friday by the worried owner in Bridgnorth after the dog's paw was "impaled" by a loose bar from its crate, a spokesperson for the Shropshire Fire and Rescue Service said.

A crew went to Wenlock Rise and was able to cut the dog free with bolt cutters in an operation lasting just under half an hour.

The fire service spokesperson said the dog was then taken to the vet by the owner.
