Dog rescued from cliff in East Runton, near Cromer

A dog stuck on a cliff in East Runton, near Cromer, was rescued by the 10-man North Norfolk cliff rescue team this morning.

The team from Cromer and Sheringham was sent to rescue the dog, a 10-year-old Weimaraner, a chocolate brown Labrador cross, at about 9.45am.

The dog's owner was staying at the Wymondham caravan park in East Runton, and had raised the alarm after the dog had run off. A Yarmouth Coastguard spokesman said: 'We had to carry out a full cliff rescue even though the dog was only 4ft off the cliff on an overhang. We had to persuade it to go into our bag to be rescued.'
