Lifeboat and Coastguard crews have been scrambled to rescue a woman at Trevellas Porth.

They were called yesterday lunchtime to reports of a woman suffering a back injury after jumping from rocks into the sea.

She'd been part of a coasteering team with a fully qualified instructor when it happened at around 12.15pm

Drustan Ward, RNLI lifeguard supervisor for the area, said:

'The RNLI lifeguards here at St Agnes work frequently with the volunteer lifeboat crew during incidents such as these and it's great to work as a team together to ensure the best possible outcome for the casualty.

"The lady was with a fully qualified instructor but this was an unfortunate accident.

The instructor did the right thing in contacting lifeguards as soon as the incident occurred and we wish her a speedy recovery.'
