Dog rescued after quarry fall
A springer spaniel which fell 50ft down a quarry onto a ledge was rescued by firefighters this evening.
One fire engine from Tavistock and the specialist rescue team from Camels Head, in Plymouth, were sent to the scene off the A386, near Tavistock, just after 6pm.
Crews arrived to find the dog had slipped 15 metres (50ft) down the quarry face and was trapped on a ledge.
One firefighter was lowered to the ledge and recovered the seven-month-old dog. It was then taken to a vet by its owner. The extent of its injuries is not known.
