A dog, which fell into frozen Kirk Hallam lake yesterday (Thursday), is believed to have died.

Four fire engines, as well as animal rescue and water rescue officers from Derbyshire fire service rescued the animal from the lake off Godfrey Drive at about 6.45pm yesterday.

Efforts to save the dog by giving it CPR and oxygen were in vain as it is thought the pet died at the scene.
