Warning after dog falls 150ft to death off Dorset coast
A dog died after plunging 150ft off a Dorset cliff.
Lulworth Coastguard rescue team was called to the scene near Durdle Door beauty spot yesterday.
But the springer spaniel was found dead on the beach below.
Coastguards are now warning owners to keep dogs on leads when walking near cliffs, following a separate incident yesterday in which a golden retriever died after falling 40ft at Exmouth in Devon.

Portland Coastguard watch manager Cindy Rodaway: "When walking near cliffs you should keep your dog on a lead to keep them safe.
"Even well behaved and obedient dogs can still behave unpredictably and run over cliffs when they hear or smell something interesting.
"If your dog goes over, please don't attempt a rescue, in an emergency contact 999 for the coastguard."
