A SPANIEL trapped underground for three days at an Abingdon sports park will have a starring role in a television show today.

Two years ago Spencer wandered into an underground pipe at Tilsley Park and got stuck.

After Thames Water staff, contractors and firefighters were called in to help, the canine was located alive in the 30cm pipe beneath the AstroTurf football pitch off Dunmore Road and reunited with his relieved owners.

Spencer will feature in a new BBC One series called Saved On Camera, which recalls the rescue effort in February 2018.

His tale will appear in episode six, which is set to be broadcast today at 11.45am.
