    Breaking news : Dog rescued after falling down well in Eastleigh

    A DOG has been rescued after falling down a well - where she spent all night.
    There had been an overnight search for four-year-old labradoodle Lily, who went missing yesterday.
    Lily had gone missing while being walked in woods off Chestnut Avenue yesterday afternoon, sparking a hunt that carried on into the early hours.
    As the search resumed this morning, a whimpering was heard coming from a brick-lined well in a wooded area off Nightingale Avenue.
    Lily was spotted two metres (six foot) down the well and a Hampshire Fire and Rescue Service animal rescue specialist was called.
    An extendable pole was lowered down to the desperate dog and a noose carefully looped around her shoulders, before she was pulled to the surface and reunited with her grateful owners just after 10am.

    Animal rescue specialist Anton Phillips said: "Lily is one lucky dog as she landed on a log around two metres down, when the well is likely to have been a lot deeper than that.

    "The extendable tools we now have thankfully meant I could get her out relatively easily on my own.

    "But there is a lot of emotion involved in rescues like this for the owners, often as much as any house fire. It's important they call specialists like us to deal with them, rather than try to carry out the rescue themselves and create an even bigger problem."
