This is the moment firefighters pulled a puppy to safety after it was trapped for down a rabbit hole for seven hours.

Mischievous terrier Lincoln had been out for a walk with his owner roaming the woods when into the warren.

Lincoln's owner was forced to call the fire service after being unable to retrieve the puppy.

He was trapped for seven hours before a team of firefighters from Martock Community Fire Station in Somerset managed to pull him to safety.

Watch manager and station commander Paul Cregan filmed the moment that his crew finally rescued the naughty little terrier from the bottom of the hole.

A firefighter kneeling next to the rabbit hole can be seen hoisting Lincoln from the hole and dusting the mud from his black fur as the team erupt into cheers.

Little Lincoln can be seen looking relieved around at his rescuers and towards the camera before the firefighter hands him back over to his gracious owner.

Devon and Somerset Fire and Rescue Service shared the lovely video on Twitter, commenting that it was 'almost like the moment a baby is delivered!'
