Dog rescued by RNLI after being missing for a week

A dog is being reunited with its owner after a Minehead lifeboat crew spotted it stranded on cliffs. Sprig the Springer Spaniel had been missing for more than a week. The Minehead RNLI crew found him near Foreland Lighthouse - hungry and thirsty but otherwise in good health.

We went in as close as we could and then we could see it was a dog. It was about 30 feet above the water and we couldn’t work out how it had got in that position.

He had clearly been there for some time because he was licking water off my dry suit. And he did seem rather pleased to see us.
