Bella takes a tumble




The Swanage team were tasked to the Downs in Swanage for ''Bella' who had gone down the cliff about 60 feet yesterday afternoon.

The team carried out an immediate rescue deploying a rope technician to secure the dog from falling any further. There was concerned the owner was with the dog and that's the reason for the rapid deployment of the team.  Thankfully the dogs owner had gone to the NCI lookout to report the dog and walked along the beach to find where it was.

The St Albans Coastguard team were called to support the Swanage team and assisted in recovering the technician and the dog to the top of the cliff.

All were reunited at the top of the cliff and Bella received no injuries

As the owner of Bella, i would like to say a big,big thankyou to all the people that were involved in saving her life as she means the world to me. I would also like to thank the children who kept me company at the bottom of the cliffs and were keeping me up to date with what was going on at the top and the offer of water. I am a regular who donates to the life boat and coastguard charities but there will be a bigger one coming your way. Thankyou so much for all the good work that you do. Paul
