Man trapped in rocks at Sheringham has been safely rescued
A man who was trapped in the rocks at Sheringham earlier today has been freed thanks to a multi-agency response.
HM Coastguard coordinated the response after the 999 call came in just after 5.30pm today (28 July).
Cromer and Sheringham Coastguard Rescue Teams were sent along with Sheringham RNLI Lifeboat, Norfolk Fire & Rescue Service, Norfolk Police and East of England Ambulance Service.
Emergency responders worked closely together to free the man who is now in the care of the ambulance service.
Sam Stockdale, senior maritime operations officer from HM Coastguard said: ‘It’s such good news that this man has been freed. We often talk about how training matters between the various frontline responders and today has shown just why it does. Everyone worked together on scene to look after the man and also to free him as soon as was practically possible.’
