Dramatic video footage has emerged of a puppy rescue from the River Thames near Kew Gardens.
Fudge, a cockapoo, aged eight months, was being taken for a walk, but the excitable youngster skidded down the steep embankment into the fast-flowing water.
Passers-by rushed to help the owner, Marguerite Mungovan, who edged her way down the embankment to try and reach the puppy without success.
Jogger, Yousef Al-Asfour, sprung into action and after assessing the situation used a nearby ladder in order to get closer to the furiously paddling puppy.
