Dog tracks missing holidaymakers

A police dog helped to rescue three people who were missing near the banks of the River Dart in Devon.

Two teenagers, who were on holiday from Dorset, had been in the river near Buckfastleigh, when one fell and fractured his leg.

An adult who tried to help the youth also fell and was hurt.

The three were tracked down by a police dog and paramedics and firefighters had to use the Dart Valley railway track to get to them.

All three were suffering from hypothermia and were taken to hospital. Their condition is not thought to be serious.
