A woman whose dog was rescued after falling off Orcombe Point has thanked those who came to her aid.

Jan Owen was walking her cocker spaniel Maisie along the coast path between Exmouth and Sandy Bay on March 13 when the incident happened.

As reported last week, Maisie was rescued by fire crews, and returned to her owner unharmed.

Jan said: “Please could I express my thanks and gratitude to Exmouth and Clyst St George fire brigade for rescuing Maisie when she fell from the cliffs on the coastal path.

“Could I also thank Mike with his two Dobermans who crawled through the undergrowth to talk to Maisie and calm her down until the fire brigade arrived.

“It was a very traumatic time but luckily Maisie was totally uninjured and seemed none the worse for her experience.

“Thank you all again for your help and kindness.”

Exmouth Coastguard has reiterated warnings to keep dogs on leads when near cliff edges, following the incident with Maisie and an unrelated incident where a dog died after falling from cliffs at Danger Point, near Budleigh.
