Fire crews rescue women and dog

Two women have been rescued from a river after going to help a guide dog which fell into the water.

The incident happened on Wednesday in the River Great Ouse near the Millfield Flats, Willow Lane in Stony Stratford.

Buckinghamshire Fire Service said one of the women was visually impaired, but the guide dog had been walking free.

Three rescue crews helped the women and said one of them had sustained injuries during the ordeal, said the fire service spokesman.
