A dog has had a lucky escape after jumping from a first-floor window and running half a mile before becoming wedged in a tiny space between two walls.

Taba disappeared from her home on 3 November after being scared by fireworks, squeezing out of an upstairs window and using a conservatory roof as a means to escape.

The distressed dog was found the following evening, wedged head-first into a 6in (15cm) gap between two walls, half a mile away from her Watford home.

The home owner said she only became aware Taba was there when her cat began behaving strangely and she went outside to investigate.

After the RSPCA struggled to free the trapped animal, Hertfordshire firefighters came to the rescue, pulling her to safety after a three-hour operation.

After being sedated, the medium sized dog was winched to safety using ropes.

RSPCA inspector Rachel Smith said Taba "barely had room to breathe" and "was so scared and distressed, I was concerned that she was going to wedge herself in even tighter."

After managing to get a hook around her collar, Ms Smith held her in place and called the fire service for help.

With no major injuries from her ordeal, Taba has been suffering from sore paws since her lucky escape.
