Sheepdog survives cliff fall

A SHEEPDOG survived a 100ft fall off a cliff while trying to head off a stray lamb.

Meg, a two-year-old border collie, resumed work after being rescued by firemen from a ledge in the 400ft (120m) deep quarry near her owners farm in Tredegar, South Wales.

Joan Price, the sheep farmers wife, said: “Meg was rounding up the sheep with the other dogs and was so intent on her task that she did not see the edge.”
