A dog trapped sixty metres down a mine in the Tamar Valley has been pulled back to safety.

Freya was stuck up a cliff face when a crew from Devon Cave and Rescue came to her aid.

She was encouraged by team member Joe Cartwright onto a ledge with treats, water, and a lot of stroaking behind the ears.

Then fellow colleague Rick Stewart abseiled over to load Freya into a bag so she could be winched back to the arms of her owners.
