BOTH Fishguard RNLI lifeboats were tasked by HM Coastguard to attempt the rescue of a
small dog which had fallen from the coastal path between Newport and Aberfforest on
Wednesday (Apr 6).
The inshore lifeboat and all-weather lifeboat launched at 5:40pm after the owner of the dog
reported that the animal had fallen some 70 feet down a sheer cliff into an inaccessible
cove. Once on scene the inshore lifeboat, with three volunteer crew, manoeuvred into the
cove and rescued the dog. They then delivered the dog to the relieved and happy owner at
Aberfforest beach. The small dog, apart from a minor leg injury and no doubt a few bruises,
Both lifeboats then returned to base arriving at 7:00pm.
