Dog survives 70-foot quarry fall

A dog has miraculously survived after plunging around 70 feet into a quarry in Rossendale on Saturday.

The dog, named Wilson, was later transported to the Shuttleworth Veterinary Surgery for examination where his condition appeared to improve.

He was later transferred to a different vet's for overnight observations.

Wilson’s owner Faye Simpson said he is in a ‘stable condition’ and has been ‘very lucky so far’.
