Eyemouth RNLI lifeboats search for dog in cliff fall
Following reports that a dog had fallen over a cliff, the UK Coastguard launched both Eyemouth RNLI lifeboats at 6:25pm on Friday 1 September 2017.
Further reports indicated the dog was last seen on Eyemouth beach, however, following checks with members of the public in the area, search teams were not able to locate it.
Content that the dog had made its own way to safety, all units were stood down by the UK Coastguard and returned to station, an hour after the initial call.
