Mumbles lifeboat crew rescue deserted island dog
Saturday morning the volunteer crew of the Mumbles inshore lifeboat Mark Lott were called to the aid of a dog which had jumped onto a deserted rock.
Crew member Rhys John said 'We would urge all dog owners to keep their dogs on a lead while out on the cliff paths and always contact the Coastguard rather than try and rescue your dog yourself'.
