A MAN was rescued from Dorset cliffs after an emergency call.

The victim was picked up from 70 metres down a cliff near the White Nothe after reports he was trapped at around 2.30pm on Tuesday (April 4).

A spokesperson for the Dorset and Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Service (DWFRS) said: “The casualty was conscious but suffering breathing difficulties and due to the nature of the call, fire control remained on the telephone for a considerable time providing support and reassurance to the casualty using call handling techniques and communication to liaise with crews to assist with locating the casualty in a remote area.”

Specialist equipment was used to get to the man, who was checked over by paramedics at the scene.

A spokesperson for the Wyke Coastguard CRT, who also attended the incident along with the Lulworth Coastguard Rescue Team, said: “The casualty was recovered to the cliff top by DWFRS.

“(He) was then checked over by paramedics and given the all clear.”
