Sheep dry after dip

All's wool that ends well

A sheep is drying off after surviving several hours stranded at sea.

The animal fell over a cliff near the queenie tip in Peel on Wednesday evening, and managed to scramble up onto a rock.

Officers from the Coastguard located her, but said there was 'nothing [they] could do' due to the sheep's remote location.

The sheep's owner arranged a private boat to recover her the next morning.

She is now described as 'safe and well'.
