Coastguards airlift woman and dog off Devon cliff

A woman and her dog had to be airlifted to safety after getting stuck on cliffs in Devon.

The woman, who has not been named, climbed up from Dunscombe beach near Sidmouth after her Labrador got stuck on Saturday.

However, the pair got stuck half way up and the cliffs were too crumbly for coastguard rescue teams to reach them.

A helicopter was scrambled and the crew winched the pair to the top of the cliff.
