A dog that went missing at sea for four days has been found alive – swimming a mile away from the shore near Hastings Beach.

Lifeboat crews in Hastings were called into action after a member of the public reported seeing a dog chase a seagull into the water.

The seven-year-old German Shepherd, called Storm, was reunited with his owner before being sent to the vet for a check-up.

His owner, Craig Lazar, 46, thanked Lifeboat crews for rescuing the dog while he was swimming a mile out from the coast.

“I have been out looking for Storm since he went missing on Sunday and last night I was out until midnight searching for him,” he said.

“When I got the call this morning that he was on the beach, I was over the moon.

“The Coastguard reassured me the whole time, talking me through the rescue process and keeping me updated on how they were conducting the search. I just can’t thank them all enough for bringing him safely home.”
