Dog rescued from 200ft cliff fall

A dog was rescued by coastguards on the Isle of Man after it plunged 200ft (61m) over a cliff top during gale force winds.

The spaniel, called Suki, fell down the cliff face on Marine Drive, Douglas and became trapped on Sunday at 1740 GMT, said coastguards.

The animal had been out for a walk with its owner when it broke free and chased a rabbit over the edge.

The dog was uninjured and carried by a coastguard to safety.
