Terrier-ble ordeal

A dog trapped underground in a badger sett for a week has finally been freed.

Three-year-old Lakeland Terrier Tyke went missing while being walked in the Castleside area of County Durham.

He was traced to the badger sett but owner Stephen Walling had to wait for permission from countryside wardens before disturbing the area.

A digger was brought in and on Wednesday night, Tyke was freed from the earth, hungry and thirsty but otherwise unharmed.
