A woman broke her leg and some ribs when she fell 3m (9ft) from a beach wall in Cornwall.

Volunteers from St Agnes Surf Life Saving Club "stabilised" the victim at Trevaunance Cove.

A coastguard rescue team was also involved in Saturday's rescue at the beach, one of those with no official RNLI lifeguard cover due to Covid-19.

The victim, who declined to get into the air ambulance because she dislikes flying, was taken to hospital by road.
