An injured man has dashed for help after his brother plummeted 70 feet from a cliff at Perranporth.

He managed to flag down a police car in the early hours when his rescue bid failed, despite his own set of injuries.

A team from RNAS Culdrose found his seriously hurt brother at Perran sands.

Both were airlifted to Derriford.

Paramedics and St Agnes coastguards were also scrambled at around 1.30am on Monday morning.

They guided in the helicopter by circling their vehicles on the beach and signalling with their headlights.

Peter Bullard is the Watch Manager at Falmouth Coastguard. He said: "Our cliffs are open - they're not fenced off. During the daytime, clearly there's a need to take care when close to the cliff edge. At night, in darkness, the risks are even greater.

"Our cliffs - they're a wonderful place to be, they're very dramatic but by the very nature, we must respect the coast path and being close to the cliff edge. Just take that extra bit of care."
