Dorset beach wave-hit woman saved by boyfriend

A woman had to be rescued by her boyfriend when she was swept into the sea off Dorset by a wave.

Coastguards were called after the force of the wave caused her to fall from a rock at Seacombe, near Worth Matravers, on Sunday.

Her knee was badly cut and she was helped to safety and taken to hospital.

In a busy day for coastguards, a nine-year-old girl was also treated for a facial injury after falling from a banana boat at Knoll Beach, Studland.

A fossil hunter was also warned after being seen climbing over a landslip at Burton Bradstock.

The beach is currently closed following the death of Charlotte Blackman in the landslide last month.

Two other people who were also approaching the area were advised to stay away.
