Inshore boat rescues an escaped dog

Caister lifeboatmen have been praised for launching the inshore lifeboat Fred Dyble to rescue  an adventurous dog that swam a quarter of a mile out to sea.

Ruby, the water-loving Labrador, who lives with owners Ann and Norman Hughes in Filby, slipped her collar and prompted a full scale rescue off Caister beach this morning.

The four-year-old dog often goes swimming on a long lead but went further than her family expected  sending them into a panic as she swam further and further out into the freezing North Sea.

In a seperate incident the Inshore Tractor was sent to the aid of a boat on a trailer that had got trapped by the incoming tide.

As an independent Lifeboat we depend entirely on donations
