The woman suffered a suspected broken ankle on the stretch between Port Isaac and Port Quin.

She was stretchered by rescue crews to a nearby farm and taken to an ambulance.

"Full team page to a female walker on the coast path with a suspected broken ankle between Port Isaac and Port Quin.

"On arriving at the tricky to access location, the casualty was stabilised while we waited for two paramedics to arrive and administer pain relief. 

"We then requested assistance from Boscastle Coastguard Team as we needed additional numbers for a long and very technical stretcher carry.

"The lady was then taken to an ambulance parked at a nearby farm.

"Remember if you see someone in distress on or near the coast, dial 999 and ask for the Coastguard; they will then task to appropriate resources; Coastguard, RNLI Lifeboat or Lifeguards or the HM Coastguard Helicopter as well as the ambulance, fire crews and paramedics if needed."
