A man had to be rescued by coastguards after falling off the cliff at Filey Brigg.

Coastguards were able to locate the casualty after he used the light on his mobile phone to attract attention last night (October 16).

His location was near the coastal path which meant the two search teams were able to access the man on foot.

The casualty had suffered an arm injury and was carried to the top of the cliff where he was transferred to a coastguard helicopter and taken to Hull Royal Infirmary for treatment.
