Dalmatians' car rescue drama

This article was published in January 2007. Please see Latest News for more recent information.

She was driving in The Rye when the accident happened, and there were no other vehicles involved.

Firefighters freed her by cutting the roof off the car, but they had a tricky situation to contend with because the woman had two Dalmatian dogs on the back seat.

Watch commander Ian McLaren, who attended the incident, said: "The dogs were very distressed, as she was, and we had to remove them before we could get the roof off."

The woman did not suffer any serious injuries, but she was given a neck brace and put on a spine board and given oxygen as a precaution, and an ambulance took her to the Luton & Dunstable Hospital for a check up.

A Beds Police spokesman confirmed that the road was closed while the car - a Suzuki Wagon estate - was removed. He also said that a dog collection unit was summoned to keep an eye on the Dalmatians, which were unharmed.
