Sheepdog rescued from mineshaft

A sheepdog has been saved in a rescue operation after it fell down a disused mineshaft in Pembrokeshire.

Firefighters pulled the dog to safety on Saturday after it plunged about 30ft (9m) down the shaft while rounding up a flock at Cresselly, near Tenby.

The farmer raised the alarm and a fireman was lowered into the shaft on a harness and brought the dog to safety.

Mid and West Wales Fire and Rescue Service said the dog appeared to have escaped injury.
