A dog who went over a Pembrokeshire cliff was found safe and sound in a blow hole behind a cave.

The lucky pet was rescued in a joint operation between the RNLI and coastguard rescue teams on Friday afternoon.

Tenby's relief RNLI all-weather lifeboat was launched shortly after 12.30pm after concerned members of the public reported that their dog had gone over the cliff at Barafundle.

Once at the scene, crew members boarded the lifeboat's Y-boat to search the rocks and a cave below the area, but could not find the dog.

Tenby and St Govan's coastguard rescue teams at the top of the cliff then joined in the mercy mission.

They deployed a rescue technician by rope to search the cliff and rocks from above, whilst the lifeboat provided safety cover.

Tenby RNLI crew member and press officer Ben James was happy to report a successful outcome.

He said: "Whilst searching, they located the dog in a blow hole behind that cave that the Y-boat searched, but was inaccessible by sea.

"The dog, who was none the worse for his ordeal, was retrieved and brought back up the cliff, where he was reunited with his delighted owners."

The lifeboat was then stood down and returned to station, arriving at around 3pm.
