A dog was rescued after falling down cliffs in Aberdeenshire.

The emergency services were alerted to the incident near Slains Castle just before 12:30 on Saturday.

Two coastguard rescue teams, from Cruden Bay and Peterhead, were sent to the scene along with the RNLI lifeboat from Peterhead.

A coastguard spokesman said the teams had been planning for a rope rescue, but the dog was rescued by the lifeboat crew and returned to its owner.
