A four-year-old dog has been rescued by firefighters after falling between rocks.
The Shih Tzu had been running near Trow Point Rocks when it fell down a gap between the rocks and became stuck at about 2pm, today.
Two crews from South Shields were called to help.
A firefighter was able to put the dog into a special dog bag and lift it to safety before reuniting it, with its owner.
It is not believed the dog was injured in the ordeal.
