Woman rescued from gorge cliffs
Firefighters worked with cliff rescue teams to help rescue a woman from the cliffs in Cheddar Gorge, Somerset.

The woman, who was reported to be suffering heart problems, was lowered more than 200ft (61m) during the rescue operation on Monday afternoon.

She was examined by paramedics before being taken to hospital. Her condition is not known.

The road through the busy tourist attraction was closed for a time to allow crews to set up rescue equipment.
