Land's End cliff fall climber rescued


A man has been airlifted after falling 20ft (6m) down cliffs in Cornwall.

The 29-year-old climber was rescued on Sunday evening in a five-hour long operation after falling at Land's End in bad weather, coastguards said.

A helicopter made attempts to rescue the man near the bottom of the 200ft (60m) cliffs but could not reach him.

A paramedic was winched down the cliffs by coastguards to treat him. The man was airlifted from the bottom of the cliffs and flown to hospital in Truro.
