A FORTY-three-year-old woman has been left with “several suspected injuries” after slipping off cliffs near Dunbar’s Castle rocks.

Emergency services were called out before 7am on Monday morning to help the woman, who was injured after slipping off a cliff near the town’s leisure pool.

The UK Coastguard got in touch with the town’s lifeboat crew to help emergency services attending to the woman, who was at the bottom of the cliffs and had suffered several suspected injuries.

After being assessed by the ambulance service medics, assisted by members of the coastguard, it was decided to recover the woman via the lifeboat.

After retrieving a suitable rigid basket stretcher, the crew assisted in recovering the woman safely to the lifeboat and returned to the harbour.

She was then passed to the ambulance at about 7.20am.

Meanwhile, the RNLI crew was called out again just moments later after reports of an unmanned boat drifting in the harbour.

The volunteer lifeboat crew discovered two crewmen sleeping inside the vessel, unaware she had slipping her mooring.

Grateful for their early morning wake-up call, the men, on passage from Fraserburgh to the Isle of Wight, moved their boat to a safe berth.
