A GROUP of Glasgow firefighters have been invited to a show by two Still Game stars following a rescue mission.

It comes after emergency crews raced to the city's Kings Park on Monday, September 4, to rescue two small dogs who had become trapped after entering a "large hole".

On arrival, the fire crew, from Castlemilk's Red Watch, instantly recognised the pooches' owners as Jane McCarry and Mark Cox - Isa and Tam from the sitcom.

After successfully rescuing the star's animals, the crew were invited by the pair to the Still Game-inspired 'People Huv Tae Know' show at the King's Theatre this weekend.

Watch Commander Ricky Borland, who was in charge of the mission, said: "The hole the dogs had become trapped down was very deep and was located behind a large, felled tree.

"The fear was that the hole would collapse and trap the dogs inside.

"We had to be very careful with how we worked but were thankfully able to free the dogs safely.

"Jane and Mark were delighted and were very thankful. We're all big fans of the show, so recognised them right away.

"It was a successful rescue and a really positive outcome all round. The invite to the show was just the icing on the cake."
