A climber has died in hospital after being struck by a falling rock on a 150ft (45m) high sea cliff in Pembrokeshire.

Jonathan Woods, 36 from Bristol, was at Bosherston Head near St Govans, with his girlfriend when the accident happened on Sunday.

Friend Tim Emmett said fellow climbers were "devastated".

Mr Woods's late father, Michael Woods, was a chairman of the British Mammal Society.

The Welsh Ambulance Service said the call came in just after 1530 GMT on Sunday.

Mr Woods, who was known as Woody and was an environmentalist, suffered chest injuries and was air-lifted by the RAF to Withybush Hospital, Haverfordwest.

In a statement, Mr Emmett said: "The climbing community is devastated by his loss.

"It was such an unfortunate accident. Our thoughts go to his family and friends."
