Man hurt after 'tombstoning' jump
A man has been hurt after jumping off a concrete ledge in a stunt known as "tombstoning" on Plymouth Hoe in Devon on Tuesday night.

Police were called to the rocks near the Royal Corinthian Yacht Club after people heard his screams.

The 18-year-old had landed awkwardly in the sea after jumping, but was able to scramble back on to the rocks.

He was placed on to a spinal board with chest and back injuries and then taken to Derriford Hospital.
