Injured cliff fall dog rescued by New Quay RNLI

On Tuesday (23 August) the New Quay RNLI inshore lifeboat the Audrey LJ was launched at noon at the request of HM Coastguard to rescue an injured dog which had fallen from the cliff near the Fish Factory.

The lifeboat, with Ben Billingham, Station Mechanic, at the helm, and accompanied by crew members Brett Stones and Rory Edwards, quickly located the Staffie type dog, which seemed to have an injured paw, and brought it on board.

It was taken back to New Quay Harbour and reunited with its grateful owners., ,
