Tenby RNLI raced into action on the busy Bank Holiday Monday, following reports that a pet pooch had fallen over a coastal cliff.

Tenby’s relief all-weather lifeboat was requested to launch shortly after 9 am on Monday (August 28), following a call received by the Coastguard stating that a dog had fallen over the cliff at Box Bay, near Stackpole.

The volunteer crew were soon on the water and made their way to the scene, 10 miles west of the station.

As they were approaching the beach, a kayaker who happened to be in the area was on his way into the beach.

He then collected the dog before bringing it out to the lifeboat, where it was checked over and made comfortable, before being brought into Stackpole Quay and handed over to the Coastguard to await it's owner.
