Girl blown off cliff
A teenage girl is recovering in West Cumberland Hospital after being blown over a cliff at St Bees yesterday.
She is alive because of the skill and professionalism of the St Bees lifeboat and a Royal Navy Sea King helicopter crew who airlifted her to hospital.
The accident prompted a warning from the emergency services about the dangers of walking in high winds, especially near cliffs. Dave Bullingham, the Cumbrian sector manager for the coastguard, urged people to take extra care this summer.
