Emergency services rushed to Durlston Country Park to assist an elderly woman after a fall.

The coastguard, ambulance service and Dorset Police were called to the nature park on Saturday afternoon following reports that the woman had slipped on rough ground.

Suspecting a broken leg, South Western Ambulance Service asked for the coastguard to assist the woman to a point where she could be transferred into the ambulance and taken to hospital.

A spokesperson for the coastguard said it was true “multi agency working” and wished the woman a speedy recovery.
