Smokey the cliff-top dog rescued in California

Firefighters have rescued a dog from a crevice high above a beach in California in the US.

Aerial images showed a team approaching the stranded dog on a ladder and coaxing him from a small hole in the cliff.

They were then able to secure the dog and slowly lower the animal on the ladder back down to the ground.
