Dog and owner rescued from cliff near Lyme Regis

A dog and its owner have been rescued from a cliff face in Dorset following a two-hour operation. Thirteen coastguard officers and a lifeboat crew were involved after the pair became stuck 60ft up rocks near West Bay.

A coastguard spokesman said it appeared the owner of the dog, a husky-alsatian cross, had attempted a lone rescue after his pet had gone missing the night before. Both were recovered safe and well after becoming entangled in undergrowth.
