A lifeboat crew had to rescue a dog after it chased seagulls into the sea off Rhyl.

The pet was about half a mile away from the shore by the time the RNLI crew reached it.

The dog and its owner had gone for a walk along the front when the drama unfolded at about 09:00 BST.

A spokesperson for Rhyl RNLI said the dog followed the seagulls into the sea, and kept going as the birds went further out to sea.
