A coastguard team was called out to help free a trapped dog on the Wirral.

Flint Coastguard Rescue Team was tasked by UK Coastguard, along with Wirral Coastguard Rescue Team, to a dog trapped in rocks near the sea wall by New Brighton Marine Lake just after 7pm on Friday.

A spokesman for the team said: "On scene, coastguard rescue officers maintained a cordon around the beach and marine lake to allow Merseyside Fire and Rescue Service Firefighters and their Search and Rescue Team a safe working environment.

"Firefighters used a range of equipment and tools in order to create a space big enough to free Molly the beagle to the delight of its owner."
