Dog gets trapped in pigeon coop in Cambridgeshire

A dog trapped in a pigeon coop in Cambridgeshire has been rescued by fire crews.

Black labrador Honey got trapped trying to get into the coop at Stonely, near Kimbolton, at 1200 GMT on Thursday.

Firefighters could not dig Honey out so had to move as many pigeons out of the coop as possible before cutting a hole into the floor of the coop.

A fire service spokesperson said no animals were injured, although some pigeons were distressed by the barking.
