Cliffs at Branscombe
The man was walking up a cliff path
A man is being treated for a suspected broken ankle after being airlifted from cliffs in east Devon.

The 40-year-old man from Guildford fell and injured his ankle at Branscombe as he walked up a slippery cliff path from a beach to his campsite.

Portland Coastguards said that an inshore lifeboat from Sidmouth and the Beer cliff rescue team also helped with the rescue.

The helicopter took the man to the Royal Devon and Exeter Hospital.
