Video footage shows a rescue helicopter landing at Wells Cathedral in Somerset, to rescue a woman trapped between two turrets.
The 60-year-old is believed to have fallen 30ft after plunging through a void in a wall, while on a tour of the cathedral.
An Avon and Somerset Police spokeswoman said a helicopter from RAF Kinloss in the north of Scotland airlifted the woman to Frenchay Hospital in Bristol, with what are believed to be arm and pelvic injuries.
