A dog was rescued by the RNLI yesterday after it had fallen from the cliffs and into the water at Mewslade Bay on the Gower.

Crews were alerted to the incident at around 6:30pm yesterday evening after they could see the dog swimming in the water, unable to climb back up onto the cliffs.

A lifeboat had to be launched and one crew member was put ashore to rescue the dog, whose owner was standing at the top of the cliffs.

The dog was not harmed in the incident and was later reunited with its owner who was very emotional and extremely grateful to the crew for saving his pet.
