RNLI saves puppy in cliff face rescue
A puppy which was stuck 50ft up a cliff on the North Cornwall coast was safely reunited with its owners after being rescued by the RNLI.
The dog – named Beauty – had gone over the edge between St Saviours Point and Padstow and was stuck half way.
The D-class inshore lifeboat from Rock was launched but its crew were faced with an unstable cliff covered in brambles and gorse.
RNLI volunteer James Batters decided to climb out of the boat and up the cliff when the dog started to become agitated.

"We decided to call the coastguard cliff rescue team but then the dog started to sound very distressed so I made the decision to climb up the cliff," James, the helmsman at Rock, said."I had to go a good 15 metres up to reach Beauty. I was then able to safely bring him down the cliff and deliver him back to his owners who were on a nearby beach."
RNLI crews are sometimes called on by the coastguard to assist in the recovery of dogs to ensure distressed owners didn't put themselves in danger trying to rescue them.
