A multi-service rescue is under way in the South Hams following an incident at Snapes Point.

It is understood that someone has sustained an ankle injury after slipping on a path near the beauty spot earlier today.

At least two ambulances have been seen attending the incident, along with a helicopter which reportedly landed at a nearby rugby club. It is not clear if it has been used in the rescue.

There is no further word on the casualty. The coastguard say the incident is ongoing.

“Just before 11.30am today (29 December), HM Coastguard had a report that someone had slipped on a path at Snapes Point and needed help with a suspected ankle injury,” said a coastguard spokesperson.

“The Coastguard rescue team from Prawle and South West Ambulance service have been sent. The incident is ongoing and we have no further information at the moment.”
