Dog Survives 60ft Fall

A dog's survived with just a scratched nose - after falling 60 feet from cliffs off the South Coast.

Tommy the collie was with his owner on Monday (14th March) at Swanage, Dorset, when he got too close to the edge of the cliff and slipped over the side.

Swanage coastguard officers were on scene and could hear the dog but were unable to locate it. The lifeboat launched, with crew member Tom Greasty at the helm, and made its way to Studland. After rounding Old Harry, a search commenced along the base of the cliff towards the beach.

The dog was spotted and two crew members were put ashore; a member of the Swanage coastguard was also nearby and, between them, they managed to stop 'Tommy' the dog running away.

Tommy was fine, except for a graze on his nose, so he was walked back to the lifeboat, where he was treated to a short boat ride before being reunited with his very grateful owner.
