A dog endured high winds and torrential rain after it was left tied to a tree during Sunday’s storm.

While most pets were tucked up indoors escaping the bad weather over the weekend, the little Cairn terrier was caught in the worst storm to hit the UK for many years.

She was found tied to a tree in the woods in Centre Vale Park, Todmorden, this morning (Monday).

The dog was taken to West Mount Vets, Burnley Road, where she was looked after by staff.

Officers from the Upper Valley Neighbourhood Policing Team said the dog’s owner has now been located.

A spokesperson said: “The dog had escaped and somebody found her wandering on the park so tied her up.

“Her owner is now on the way to collect her.”
