A man has been injured after falling at the beach.

Coastguards were called to Charmouth beach shortly after 4pm on Tuesday to find the 50-year-old man with a broken ankle.

Officers from Lyme Regis attended and treated the man while team members from West Bay assisted with the transfer from the beach and back to the car park.

He was then taken to Dorset County Hospital for onward care and treatment.

A spokesman for West Bay coastguard said: "We wish him a full and speedy recovery."
