The Eyemouth RNLI inshore lifeboat was launched by the UK Coastguard at 9pm after it was reported that a dog had suffered a cliff fall.

Labradoodle, Freya, was out for a walk with her owner when she chased a rabbit near a cliff edge and disappeared from view.

Meanwhile, a local fisherman reported hearing a dog howling from the base of cliffs near Eyemouth caravan park.

The inshore lifeboat arrived on scene and quickly located Freya.

One of the crew went ashore and Freya, thankfully non the worse for her fall, was very glad to see them and happily boarded the boat.

The lifeboat then brought Freya back to the station, where she was reunited with her relieved owner.
