Coastguard Rope Rescue Teams tasked to incident near Dunluce Castle

HM Coastguard was tasked on Saturday afternoon (30 July) to help a casualty on the North Antrim coast.

A spokesperson for HM Coastguard commented:

“Coleraine and Ballycastle Rope Rescue Teams were tasked on Saturday afternoon to reports of a person who had slipped while coasteering east of Dunluce Castle, suffering a suspected lower leg fracture.

“The coasteering group did the right thing and contacted the Coastguard straight away.

“In a tricky operation due to the location and terrain, the casualty was secured into a rope rescue stretcher and recovered to the top of the cliff.

“We even had an audience of locals in the field!”
