'Lucky' the dog survives 120ft cliff fall

A DOG was nicknamed "Lucky" yesterday after surviving a 120ft cliff fall -- with just a limp.

A woman had let both her dogs off the lead as they walked in Dorset and Oscar the cocker spaniel fell over the edge and was then found by a passer-by.

Coastguard Steve Williams said: "It wasn't a sheer drop but it probably scrambled down the cliff and landed quite heavily at the bottom."

He warned dog owners not to let their pets near cliff edges as the dog would not have been as lucky if it had been a sheer drop.
