11 dogs rescued after cliff fall

Eleven dogs from a hunt pack have been rescued after becoming trapped in a gorge near Aberystwyth.

Aberdyfi Search and Rescue Team carried the animals to safety after abseiling 200ft (60m) down a rock face on Plynlimon mountain range.

They loaded the dogs into special carriers, taking part in a total of 14 trips to compete the rescue.

The search team was alerted on Saturday evening but volunteers started the all-day rescue early on Sunday.

Team member Dave Williams spoke to Radio Wales's Felicity Evans about the operation.
