Miraculous survival

Police in Cumbria say a dog thrown out of a speeding car is lucky to be alive.

The black Labrador-cross bitch was recovered in a shocked state by onlookers who saw it thrown out of the car and roll along the road on Saturday afternoon.

The small white car, possibly a Nissan Micra, was driven by a woman with long dark hair. Police want anyone with information to contact them.

The dog, which has recently given birth to puppies, is being cared for in kennels.
