Peel RNLI lifeboat launched to reports of dog fallen from cliffs

Lifeboats News Release

Peel RNLI's all-weather lifeboat Ruby Clery was launched on Monday (25 July) at about 6pm to search for a dog which had fallen over the cliffs at the back of Peel Hill.

The lifeboat and its volunteer crew, under the command of Coxswain Frankie Horne, searched very close inshore and at a distance but unfortunately nothing was found and the lifeboat was released to return to station.
