The canine was stuck in the ice-cold water on Hyde Lane in St Albans before being rescued.

Hemel Hempstead station commander Keith Harland tweeted afterwards: “Dog owners please take care in these extremely cold conditions. Have your dog on a lead when you can. Do not enter the water to try and rescue your dogs.”
