The coastguard helicopter was called into action after coastguard teams from Happisburgh and Mundesley became aware of the casualty while carrying out a training exercise.

It happened at Kiln Cliffs caravan park, near Trimingham, which is near to Cromer.

An officer at the Humber Coastguard operations centre said they received a call at 6.34pm and the casualty was taken to the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital as transit times were quicker than on land.

The incident was recorded as closed at 8.39pm.
