A man was taken to hospital after he was found with serious injuries at the bottom of a cliff.

Coastguards and emergency paramedics, including the air ambulance, were called to the shore at Tibbenham's Score, Corton on Tuesday, May 9 shortly after 2pm.

A spokesman for the Lowestoft and Southwold Coastguard Rescue Teams said they were alerted following 'reports of a man at the bottom of the cliff with serious injuries.'

After the coastguard teams found the man, an A&E doctor – who lives at the top of the cliff – assisted the teams along with the East Anglian Air Ambulance, Suffolk Constabulary, RNLI Gorleston and East of England Ambulance Service.

'The male was stabilised and transported for further care to the James Paget University Hospital in Gorleston by land ambulance,' the spokesman said.
