A BRAVE group of climbers from Chichester have been involved with the rescue of a young man.

A climber, in his 20s, had to be airlifted to hospital after being swept off a cliff ledge west of Anvil Point, in Dorset on Sunday.

He was pulled from the water by a group of Chichester climbers before rescue teams arrived.

The party called the emergency services, and deployed two climbing ropes to help get the man – who was caught in a rip tide – out of the water.

Portland Coastguard, Swanage RNLI lifeboats and the St Albans Coastguard also assisted with the rescue.

The man is recovering from the incident in hospital.
