Talland Bay cliff fall man rescued by RMB Chivenor helicopter

A man has been airlifted to hospital with head injuries after falling from cliffs in Cornwall.

Brixham Coastguard said the 46-year-old man fell about 40ft (12.2m) from cliffs at Talland Bay near Polperro.

The accident happened just after midday and an RAF rescue helicopter from RMB Chivenor transferred him to Derriford Hospital in Plymouth.

A Maritime and Coastguard Agency spokesman said the condition of the man, who is not local, was not known.

The Looe coastguard team and South Western Ambulance Service Trust were also involved in the man's rescue.
