A four-legged adventurer was rescued after getting stuck on a Lake District crag.

Brody, a cockapoo, got a nasty surprise when he disappeared over the edge of a steep 25m drop at Surprise View in Borrowdale.

Keswick Mountain Rescue Team responded to a call for help and team members were called out to rescue the 14-week-old pup on Thursday.

A team spokesperson said: “Although the owners could hear the dog from the viewing point they could not see him. One of them managed to get to the base of the crag and locate the dog, but could not reach him, as he was perched on a ledge half way up the cliff.”

On arrival at the scene overlooking Derwent Water, team members prepared a rope rescue.

“A team member was lowered and quickly found the dog who, amazingly, seemed uninjured,” the spokesperson said. “After securing the dog in a rucksack the team member was lowered further to the owner, who was also secured, and both lowered again to safer ground below.

“Brody and his owners seemed delighted after being reunited but they booked in with a local vet to double check that all is well.”

The canine rescue lasted almost two hours and involved 11 Keswick MRT volunteers.
