The coastguard was called out in the north of the Island after a person slipped onto some rocks while walking.

The person fell a considerable distance into some rocks near Port E Vullen yesterday afternoon.

The crew worked with paramedics to provide medical assistance and carry the walker on a stretcher to the beach.

It took 90 minutes for the coastguards to get the person from the rocks into the waiting ambulance.
