Police have issued an urgent warning after a dog and its owner fell in a frozen lake.
The incident took place on Tuesday morning at a lake in Warrenby.
Thankfully the owner and dog were able to get back to dry land where they were checked over by paramedics.
Cleveland Fire Brigade are advising dog walkers to keep dogs on their leads when near ice and never go onto ice or into the water to rescue a dog, instead you should move to somewhere that the dog will be able to climb out and call them towards you.
