DetailsTenby’s all-weather lifeboat launched shortly before 2pm on Friday 15th October, following a report of a dog having fallen off a cliff between Stackpole and Barafundle, with the owner preparing to go down after it.

The volunteer crew quickly made the nine mile trip west and were soon on scene, where they were directed towards the dog by the crew of an MOD Range Safety vessel who happened to be in the area when the dog fell and heard its cries.

The Y-boat was launched and crew members went into the rocks to collect the lucky dog, who was sitting on rocks and seemed very happy to see the crew. She was reunited with her very relieved owner at Stackpole several minutes later.

The lifeboat then returned to station, arriving at 3.10pm.
