Dog rescued from reservoir

A black Labrador called Obi was rescued after falling 50ft into Burrator Reservoir. 

Dartmoor Search and Rescue Team Tavistock was called at around 4.20pm on Boxing Day after a dog called Obi "vaulted the parapet" of Burrator Reservoir dam. 

A spokesperson posted on social media to say that Obi had "vaulted the parapet of Burrator Reservoir dam and fallen around 50 feet into the valley below. He was spotted by a member of the public but then disappeared.

"Mountain Rescue Teams do not usually search for lost animals, but to avoid risk to members of the public who were intent on searching in darkness alongside fast flowing water we deployed our members who are trained and equipped for such tasks.

"Thankfully, within minutes of beginning our search pattern Obi was spotted and his owners were escorted to him. He was assessed by one of our members who is a veterinary surgeon and then carried to a Team Land Rover for transport to a veterinary practice in Yelverton for treatment.

"A happy end to Boxing Day for all concerned."
