The Coastguard team was called to assist with the recovery of a 2 year old Wiemaraner who had decided to follow his ball over the edge of the Stonebarrow cliff, near the Dizzy House. On arrival at scene, the dog had managed to climb back up to within 10 metres of the cliff top. The owner had secured a rope to a nearby bench and with another member of the public, recovered the animal. The Coastguard are pleased that the outcome was successful but would advise dog owners ALWAYS to promptly call the Coastguard in such situations. The Coastguard has specialist training and equipment to deal with such incidents and then nobody is putting themselves in unnecessary danger.
