Firefighters were called to help a terrier dog which had got its head stuck between a fence and a tree.
Crews used small tools to release the dog by 16:47hrs.
Corringham Station Manager Geoff Wheal said: “The dog, which is called Biscuit, had somehow got its head between a tree and a concrete fence post and was unable to get out.
“We used tools to take the fence post down and Biscuit was free. He was a little bit shaken up but seemed none the worse for wear for his ordeal.”
