A dog has been rescued by lifeboat volunteers after falling down cliffs in Angus.
The Arbroath RNLI crew launched their inshore lifeboat at around 2.15pm on Thursday to rescue a cocker spaniel named Skye.
The volunteers had to navigate a narrow gully within the cliffs to reach Skye, who had climbed onto rocks after falling into the water.
A member of the volunteer crew entered the water on a swim line and made his way to the rocks as the width of the gully was narrower than the lifeboat.
The crew member was able to check on Skye and recover her to the life boat, who was then reunited with her owner.
Volunteer helm Michael Marr, said: “We were pleased to be able to rescue Skye today and that the owners did the right thing by calling for assistance, and not trying to climb down the cliffs where they could potentially become a casualty themselves.”
“Skye was very unlucky in that she found and chased a ball that wasn’t even hers! However, the RNLI always advise dog owners keep their dogs on the lead around cliffs to prevent these incidents occurring.”
