At 10:35 hrs today, Thursday 17 November 2020, Exmouth RNLI Inshore Lifeboat, D-755 Peggy-D, was assigned by H.M. Coastguard to a report that a dog had fallen near Red Rock, Dawlish and was trapped on a ledge.

The lifeboat, launched by shorecrew Roger Jackson and Ed Steele and crewed by Guy Munnings, Mark Cockman and James Earle, made it’s way to the scene of the incident. There it was asked to stand by offshore whilst a Coastguard Rescue Team successfully rescued the animal that was returned to it’s owner, safe and uninjured.

About an hour later, following the conclusion of the incident, the lifeboat was stood down and returned to station where it was back on service soon afterwards.
