Filey Lifeboat In Pet Rescue

Filey Lifeboat In Pet Rescue

Published by Yorkshire Coast Radio News at 8:57am 18th August 2019.

Two dogs, missing for over 20 hours, were rescued by Filey RNLI lifeboat crew on Saturday afternoon.

Just before 4pm, UK Coastguard (Humber) requested the launch of Filey’s inshore lifeboat, following reports that two dogs had been spotted at the bottom of 150 foot cliffs about two miles north of Filey.

Within a few minutes the boat was launched, with crew members Ben Hargreaves, Tyler Fawthrop, Liam Frampton and Katie Pooley on board.

Pets Lexi and Cleo were spotted together at the bottom of the cliffs beneath one of the local holiday camps. It soon transpired that these were the two dogs that had been missing from a local holiday centre for over 20 hours.

The crew coaxed both dogs into the lifeboat and transported them back to Coble Landing, Filey where they were re-united with their very grateful owners.

John Ward, Lifeboat Press Officer said:

“Both the dogs were very lucky. It was very heart-warming to see that they had both stuck together to make sure the other was okay. Despite a slight injury to one of the dogs, they soon perked up when their owners arrived at the Lifeboat Station. Many thanks to Filey Coastguard Rescue Team and to the large number of Filey RNLI crew who attended"
