Greyhound dog rescued after 65ft Dorset cliff fall

A dog had to be rescued when it fell about 65ft (20m) off a cliff in Dorset and into the sea.

The greyhound, called Sandy, lost its footing on the rocks between Studland and Old Harry Rocks on Saturday afternoon.

A coastguard rescue team and RNLI lifeboat went to the scene and managed to bring the pet ashore and reunite it with its owner.

The dog had a leg injury and was taken to a local vet for treatment.
