The dog, named Cara, survived the fall but became trapped on the cliff edge and had to be rescued by boat after she was spotted by the captain of a volunteer watch run by the local Surf Lifesaving Club.

Captain of the club Joel Henthorn was first on scene and reported that Cara was quite distressed running around the bottom of the cliffs.

Speaking to CornwallLive, Mr Forehead of St Agnes RNLI said: “The St Agnes Surf Lifesaving Club is currently doing a great volunteer watch scheme. It’s taking place over the Easter break and means that volunteers are on patrol and keeping a look out when the RNLI Lifeguards aren’t there.”
