Technical rope rescue at Arbroath Cliffs


At 8.23pm yesterday (July 2), HM Coastguard received a call about a person who had fallen a short distance near the base of Arbroath Cliffs and sustained a leg injury.

Coastguard rescue teams from Arbroath and Montrose attended and set up a technical rope rescue, lowering two technicians to the person.

Two RNLI lifeboats from Arbroath were sent, and a member of the lifeboat crew came ashore to assist with pain relief before a coastguard search and rescue helicopter from Inverness transported the person to hospital in Dundee.

Take care on cliffs- use designated paths, take notice of any warning signs, be responsible and don’t take any unnecessary risks . As always, it you see anyone in trouble, call 999 and ask for the Coastguard.
