A missing greyhound was saved from a pond by a member of the public.

Fire crews were called to Carlton Marshes in Ivy Lane, Lowestoft, just after 6.30pm on Sunday evening after a dog had got into trouble in a pond.

The dog had been reportedly missing all day but was rescued by an onlooker by the time the fire service attended the scene.

A Suffolk Fire and Rescue spokesman said: "We were called to reports of an animal rescue at Carlton Marshes at about 6.32pm.

"A dog, which had been missing all day, had been rescued by a member of the public by the time we arrived."

The dog is now back at home and is recovering.
