A pet pooch had to be rescued when she fell into a moorland drainage channel.

Calder Valley Search and Rescue Team, who are based in Mytholmyord, were called out to help Maddie the collie near Oxenhope by police on Sunday afternoon.
The channel was between six and seven feet deep with up to three feet of water at the bottom. 
Two team members were lowered into the channel to try to persuade Maddie that they were there to help. 
A rope was attached to her collar and she was lifted to safety and her two very thankful owners.
