A woman in her 70s had be stretchered to the ambulance after a fall on the Norfolk Coast Path.
On Saturday, June 30, Wells and Hunstanton Coastguards responded to calls of a woman who had fallen on the coastal path in Thornham at around 6.55pm.
Once they were able to locate her, about a mile along the path, they assessed her injuries and decided the best way to get her to paramedics was on a stretcher.
The team carried the woman to the car park by the Coal Barns, where she was treated by ambulance staff.
An ambulance spokesman said: 'We were called at about 7.45pm by the coastguard to an incident on the beach, off Staithe Lane, Thornham.
