A policeman went beyond the call of duty to rescue a puppy who broke his back in a 15 ft horror fall.
Pc Phil Nunn made a makeshift spinal board out of a plank found in a skip after one-year-old spaniel Leo tumbled on to rocks.

Deb, 44, said: “Suddenly we noticed Leo wasn’t with us and then heard this yelp.
