The Initial Response Team, the IRT, was tasked to assist our West Bay flank team with a cliff rescue. The location of the cliff rescue of a female and her dog was between Thorncombe Beacon and Doghouse Hill. Due to the saturated weather conditions and the terrain, it impossible to reach the location by 4*4. Consequently all the equipment, to undertake such a rescue, had to be carried about 1 mile to the location. This made the rescue arduous The casualty and her dog were safely recovered to the top of the cliff.
