A dog has been rescued from icy waters after falling through a frozen reservoir.
The black Labrador was out walking with its owner when it ran over the Threipmuir Reservoir near Balerno, Edinburgh.
The pet fell through the ice at 10.15am and fire crews were called to the scene along with the Pentland Hill Ranger Service.
Its owner managed to rescue the dog with an inflatable dingy before the fire service arrived.
Lothian and Borders Fire and Rescue Service are warning people to stay away from iced over bodies of water after the incident. Pets should also be kept on a lead to make sure they do not fall through.
A spokeswoman for the service said: "It is important to stay well clear of frozen bodies of water, they are unsafe. There is no way of knowing whether the ice will hold and it is very easy to get into difficulties very quickly.
"The risk of people or animals falling through the ice will greatly increase as the weather improves and the ice thaws.
"Do not try to cross iced rivers, streams or reservoirs and keep dogs on a lead if they are likely to be near the ice. If a person or a pet falls through the ice call 999 immediately – don’t try to carry out a rescue yourself – you could make the situation worse. Wait for the emergency services who have the appropriate training and equipment to help safely.
"Firefighters will risk assess the situation but they will not put themselves in danger to rescue a pet. Reduce the risks of your dog coming to harm by exercising caution around frozen waterways at this time of year."
