A teenager has been airlifted to safety after going missing on the coast path in Dorset. Police were called out last night to search for the 13 year old boy. He was last seen leaving Lyme Regis football club to walk home to Charmouth. He was found in undergrowth suffering from cuts and bruises.
He was flown out by the coastguard helicopter because of the difficulty of the terrain and then taken to hospital by ambulance
