Lifeboat teams were joined by Coastguards who carried out a cliff top search.

Thankfully, a short while later, it was confirmed that the dog had managed to make its own way back to its owners without injury.

With no further assistance required, both boats were stood down and returned to station, around an hour after the initial call.
