Dramatic rescue sees dog reunited with owners after falling off cliff in Cromer

It was a tale with a very happy ending after coastguard crews helped rescue a dog who had fallen off a cliff.
Michelle and John Griffiths from Lincoln who are on holiday in the area, were walking their dogs, Tilly, 14 months, and German Shepherd Chloe, six, along Happy Valley, near to Cromer Lighthouse, when the accident happened.
Just after midday Chloe was brought up to the top of the cliff in the rescue bag and reunited with her owners, and without injury.
At first Mr Griffiths tried to locate exactly where Chloe was himself and went down some of the cliff face, but said he realised if he carried on he could become part of the problem as well, so dialled 999.
Mr Griffiths said: 'The coastguard and others have just been fantastic, especially when you think they are all volunteers. We just cannot thank them enough.'

Mrs Griffiths, 36, said she was relieved that Chloe was not hurt and was grateful to all those involved in the rescue.
