A lifeboat crew from New Quay has saved a sheep after it had fallen more than 80 feet over a cliff near Llangrannog.

The sheep survived the fall completely unscathed, with crew members believing she landed in the water, managing to swim to nearby rocks where she was rescued from.

I never thought when I joined the lifeboat crew I would be lassoing a sheep and getting the poor thing into a boat. Luckily the sheep was very calm on board but we had to tie her down for her and our safety.
