A DOG fell off a cliff near Old Harry Rocks sparking a call to the Swanage Coastguard Rescue Team.

Despite the fall the dog survived and managed to get to South Beach.

The incident was one of five attended by the team yesterday afternoon.

They helped two adults and three children being blown off shore at Studland and went to the aid of an injured male with possible spinal injuries at Swanage boat park.

Crew members also searched for a windsurfer after a member of the public expressed concern and helped a yacht with a broken mast.
