A man suffered serious leg injuries after jumping at least 60ft (18.2m) into a quarry in Shropshire.

The man, who was intending to swim in Shadwell Quarry, in Much Wenlock, was airlifted to hospital at about 17:25 BST.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said the man had reportedly hit the side of the quarry on the way down.

Other people at the quarry are believed to have rescued the 21-year-old.
