A MAN and a dog had to be rescued by firefighters after they became stranded on a small island in the Water of Leith.

Fire crews rushed to the scene of the incident in Bells Brae, underneath the Dean Bridge, following an emergency call received just after noon yesterday.

They said a 27-year-old man stranded himself on a piece of land in the Water of Leith after he tried to help a dog that was in difficulty in the 
river.

Both the man and the dog were rescued, and neither required hospital treatment.
