2 men have had to be rescued after trying to retrieve their dog that'd died after falling over a cliff in West Dorset.

The pair were walking along the beach to find the body of their Irish Setter when the tide came in and forced them to climb the rocks to safety.

West Bay Coastguard airlifted both men and their deceased dig to safety yesterday (Sunday 8th December).
