Lizard Lifeboat Launches to Reports of a Dog Over the Cliff at Kynance Cove
Our crew were paged at 1.48pm on the 11th April to reports of a dog lost from the cliff at Kynance Cove.
Conditions on scene were described as challenging and pretty treacherous with a confused sea inside of the cove with wave sets of at least 4 meters. Initial reports were that the dog was trapped inside a cave but no trace was found and following an intensive search of the area RNLB Rose was stood down to return to station arriving shortly before 4pm. HM Coastguard teams remained on scene.
