A 14-week-old cockapoo puppy had to be rescued by Keswick mountain rescue team after taking a tumble over a cliff edge at one of the area’s most visited viewpoints this morning.
Brody fell off Surprise View – a steep 25-metre drop overlooking Derwentwater – and came to rest on a ledge half way up the cliff.
Its owners could hear their distressed pet from the viewing point but were unable to see him.
One of them managed to get to the base of the crag and locate the dog, but could not reach him.
Help was requested and the Keswick team prepared a rope rescue. A team member was lowered and quickly found the dog, who amazingly, seemed uninjured.
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 was well.
