A new dog unit has been set up as part of the local search and rescue operation. West Mercia Search and Rescue has set up the new canine dog unit and the recruits have been taking part in training to get ready for action. Volunteers from Hilton Hotels joined them for a day in the woods near Stanmore Business Park in Bridgnorth to help the dogs locate people quicker as well as speed up the overall search and rescue process. If you would like to hide in the woods as practice for the search dogs and teams, or organise a collection at your local shop, visitwestmerciasar.org.uk.
