Man badly hurt in fall from cliffs on East Coast

A MAN is being treated for serious injuries after apparently falling from cliffs on the Yorkshire coast.

Humber Coastguard was called by Yorkshire Ambulance Service at about 8pm on Monday after reports that a man had fallen from the cliffs at Sewerby, just north of Bridlington.

A crew from Bridlington Coastguard was dispatched to the scene along with a Sea King search and rescue helicopter from RAF Boulmer in Northumberland.

The man was found on the beach after a short search by the Bridlington team and was airlifted to Hull Royal Infirmary.

The circumstances of the fall have not been revealed and it is not clear if the man, who has not been named, was alone at the time.
