A PUP got more than a 'surprise' when he fell 25 metres off a crag overlooking Derwentwater.

Amazingly Brody, a 14-week-old Cockapoo, was apparently uninjured when he was rescued by the Keswick Mountain Rescue on Thursday after crews were called to Surprise View at 10.46am.

A total of 11 members of the team spent nearly two hours rescuing him after landing on a ledge half way up the cliff.

A spokesman for the team said: “Although the owners could hear the dog from the view point they could not see him.

“One of them managed to get to the base of the crag and locate the dog, but could not reach him, as he was perched on a ledge half way up the cliff.

"Help was requested and the Keswick team prepared a rope rescue.

“A team member was lowered and quickly found the dog, who amazingly, seemed uninjured. After securing the dog in a rucksack the team member was lowered further to the owner, who was also secured, and both lowered again to safer ground below.

“Brody and his owners seemed delighted after being reunited but they booked in with a local vet to double check that all is well.”
