    Flashing collar saves Gloucestershire dog-walker

    NewsGeneral Dog NewsWednesday 11 January 2012
    A dog-walker who ended up hanging upside down over a river was saved after rescuers were guided to his location by his pet's flashing collar.
    The man's foot became entangled in fencing when he slipped down a riverbank in Dursley, Gloucestershire, at about 17:30 GMT on Wednesday.
    The fire service said its control room had received a mobile phone call from the distressed man.
    The spokesman said it had been a "very unlucky accident".
    Watch Commander Neil Bridges said the firefighters had located the man quickly, in Ferney, because the dog had stayed with its master.
