Night walking unwise

The rescue helicopter was called out yesterday after a man fell down the cliff at Barton-on-Sea during darkness.

He dropped 30 feet but survived with just bruised ribs.

This is the third time this year that the coastguard helicopter has had to respond to a person tumbling down the cliff after dark.

Early morning and dusk has a special feel on the coast path but night walking is unwise.
