Bude Coastguard call out to breakwater

From Bude Coastguard Rescue Team:

 

We were paged at 16:17 and tasked following the report of a casualty who was apparently trapped with a broken ankle on Bude Breakwater.

Arriving on scene, it was determined that the casualty was not trapped, but was in significant pain with a suspected sprained ankle at the bottom of Chapel Rock.

A passing doctor tended to the casualty, before the team stretchered her back to Efford Cottage, from where her partner drove her to Stratton MIU.

The team were stood down soon after.

Do be careful on the breakwater. It gets very slippy indeed!
