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!”
