Pipe dreams nearly ended in a nightmare for a husky puppy in Kempston this week, when he got his head stuck while on a walk.

Kempston Community Firefighters were called at around 9.30am on Wednesday (9 October), to reports that a husky puppy had managed to get his head stuck in a pipe while on a walk in West End Road.

A spokesperson said, “Firefighters from Kempston attended and managed to free the puppy using their specialist cutting equipment.

“Fortunately the pup was unscathed from his ordeal and was quickly reunited with his grateful owner.”
