Helicopter rescue at Wallace Monument

A teenager has been airlifted by helicopter from the top of the Wallace Monument near Stirling after dislocating his knee.

It is understood he was just four steps from the top when the injury occurred.

However, he was unable to get back down the stairs due to restricted access.

A rescue helicopter flew from RAF Lossiemouth to assist paramedics at the scene. The 17-year-old was winched to safety at about 15:09 on Sunday.
