The boy was rescued by the team and eventually taken by a road ambulance to the Colchester General Hospital. His injuries are not thought to be life-threatening.

The Coastguard rescue team set up its specialist rope/cliff rescue equipment and deployed the team Paramedic/Rope Rescue Technician over the cliff with a stretcher.

The casualty was packaged into our stretcher and recovered back up the cliff and back into the care of the Ambulance service and East Anglian Air Ambulance before it was decided to take him by road to the hospital.
