A dog was rescued after being trapped between two houses in Beverley Avenue, Sidcup on Thursday.

The seven-year-old Japanese Akita became wedged between the two semi-detached houses after trying to walk from the rear to the front of the house.

According to fireman Andy Simpson, the watch manager on duty, the gap was only about “seven inches” between the two walls.

He added: “The dog is fine now - there were no real after effects.

“The call was definitely one of the stranger ones we’ve had. We managed to prise the dog out by using washing up liquid and lots of other lubrication.

“It was a good outcome in the end. The dog seemed to be coming round afterwards. She was brilliant throughout.”

The RSPCA and a vet were both on hand for the dog’s wellbeing.
