Bulldog rescued by lifeboat
AN American Bulldog, weighing more than 100lbs, has been rescued by a lifeboat crew after getting stuck on rocks.
The bulldog, called Timothy, had been swimming at Holland Haven this morning when he got into difficulties.
The tired dog climbed onto a rock breakwater and refused to move, leaving his anxious owner with no option but to call for help.
A lifeboat from Clacton was called to assist with the rescue of the 102lb hound.
Helmsman Trevor Neal manoeuvred the inshore lifeboat up to the rocks where crew member Mark Sanders left the safety of the boat to be faced by the very large dog and its owner.

The “very grateful bulldog and owner” were then returned to the beach and away from a rapidly rising tide.
The lifeboat was requested to launch by Thames Coastguard just before 8.50am today.
