Dog rescued after falling into quarry

First published in News

A DOG was injured after it fell into a Portland quarry.

A crew from Portland and technical rescue teams from Weymouth and Poole were called to the scene at just before 1pm this afternoon, Monday.

A firefighter went into the quarry to stop the dog falling further and the coastguard used cliff rescue equipment to bring the dog back to the surface.

It had a minor injury to its front paw but was otherwise unhurt.

Exactly right, a good training opportunity, or in this case, the repeated training exercises that DFRS and our Coastguards commit themselves to were put into action for real. Our fire service protects/saves all life and property. As do our fine coastguards.
