Rachel Stormonth-Darling with Moppit.
Firefighters performed an intense nine hour rescue on a pet dog that was stuck 15ft underground for 27 hours.
Eight officers carried out the rescue with specialist excavation, videoing and listening devices usually deployed in the event of a natural disaster or building collapse.
After an exhausting effort, which involved sending cameras underground and drawing maps of what was visible, Moppit the Patterdoodle was recovered from a tunnel.
Operation Moppit concluded when the pet was pulled through a narrow crevice in the ground and reunited with relieved owner, Rachel Stormonth-Darling.
