Coastguard makes emergency landing on Plymouth Hoe

A coastguard rescue helicopter was forced to make an emergency landing on Plymouth Hoe last night because the weather was too bad to land at Derriford Hospital.

The Falmouth crew had picked up a woman who had fallen whilst walking on the South West Coastal Path between Porthtowan and Portreath in St Agnes.

A makeshift landing site was set up on the Hoe because landing at the hospital was deemed too dangerous. An ambulance was then standing by to take the woman to Derriford.
