Warning after dog dies in Dorset cliff plunge

A dog has died and another had to be rescued after plunging almost 60m (197 ft) from a Dorset cliff.

Portland Coastguard said a boxer dog was killed after going over a cliff at Durdle Door on Friday evening.

A spokesman said the death came an hour after rescuers saved a cocker spaniel who escaped her leash and got halfway down the same cliff.

Coastguards are urging owners to keep their dogs on leads near cliffs.
