Firefighters rescue cat

Firefighters in Weymouth were called to rescue a trapped cat at around 10pm last night.

A crew of firefighters arrived to find Mimi the Cat had squeezed through the facia boards on a property in Weymouth to shelter from the rain and the gap had closed behind her, trapping her inside.

Firefighters climbed up to rescue her using a triple extension ladder and cut away a small part of the plastic facia to release her unharmed – allowing her to make her own way down back to her owner.

Brave lads. Skilled operation. TRIPLE extension ladder. Well worthy of coverage. Perhaps they can now go after the missing teddies in previous breaking news?

This week, it rained; missing toys; cat stuck; coming in next week's exciting episode "man bites dog". . .
Isn't it time the Echo reverted to a weekly edition. They never have enough news for a daily, maybe once a week they'd manage to fill a small paper.

Well, I would much rather read our Echo than some of the inner city newspapers which are full of stabbings, riots, drugs, dangerous people at (it seems) every corner, etc. etc.! It brings it home to us what a safe area we live in.

Apart from the riots (there are insufficient people with that amount of organisation) - the rest sounds like a perfect description if Weymouth and it's environs.....
