Police help vets rescue injured dog

Police helped vets rescue a dog that sustained an injury while exploring one of the Island's glens.

Springer spaniel Spike became impailed on a metal spike while walking in Glen Helen last week.

Officers from the Western Neighbourhood Policing Team gave assistance to Milan Vets to get Spike to safety and removed the piece of fence, ensuring more animals won't be hurt in the future.

Fortunately Spike wasn't seriously injured and will make a full recovery.
