A man has plunged up to thirty feet from cliffs at Chapel Porth.

He had gone exploring in the dark on Thursday night.

Coastguards have told Pirate FM the 31 year old was checking out old mine workings when he slipped.

They say he is lucky to have fallen onto sand rather than rocks.

The inshore lifeboat was scrambled at around 9.30pm after the alarm was raised at a local campsite.

Rescuers found him with a broken ankle lying in a cave as the tide flooded in.

Paramedics took him to the Royal Cornwall.

He is thought to be from up country but is working in the area.
