Deer rescued from cliff

A deer trapped at the bottom of a cliff in Dorset has had a lucky escape.

Nobody is quite sure how he wound up there but after getting spooked by approaching rescuers he made a daredevil jump into the sea.

It was lucky a lifeboat crew was on hand to be fish him safely out of the water.

The deer was later released on a nearby beach.
