A WALKER had to be rescued after getting stranded on rocks while taking his dog for a late night stroll.

The man, who has not been named, was with his pet in Arbroath, Angus when they got cut off by the tide.

Two lifeboats from Arbroath were launched after a friend called the coastguard.

A spokesman from Forth coastguard station said:

“We were called out at 12.30 pm to assist a man who had been cut off while on the rocks.

“The inshore and all-weather lifeboats were launched from Arbroath and a coastguard team from Carnoustie rescued the man, who was then taken to a waiting ambulance. “

The dog was taken to a vet in Forfar to be checked over.
