RNLI rescue stranded dog after it was swept out to sea

This is the moment a dog who was swept out to sea was saved from certain death by a lifeboat crew.

The Golden Labrador disappeared after going for a dip while walking with its owner along the Sea Palling beach, Norfolk, on Sunday morning.

Her owner searched with two kayakers for the poor animal, but they were unable to find her - leaving the devastated owner to break the news to his wife.

But luckily the coastguard managed to contact the Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI) volunteers who were on a training exercise.
