Emergency services were called to Scabbacombe earlier today after a woman fell on a cliff path and injured her ankle.

A spokesperson for Berry Head Coastguard said on Social media:
“An ambulance was on scene and the air ambulance also landed on the beach. The path was too slippery for a carry out so it was decided that rescue 106 to be called and the casualty was winched aboard and flown to Torbay hospital,”
