Two people have been injured in a remote quarry in Gloucestershire, the coastguard has said.

One was rescued by helicopter from an inaccessible location near Tidenham known as white slab rocks.

One had a hand injury while the other had a suspected fractured leg. Both were taken to Bristol Children's Hospital.

Paramedics from South West Ambulance Service were also called to the scene just after 10:30 BST on Tuesday.
