Fallen Climber

Just after 4pm (Thursday 23rd August) Portland Coastguard tasked the Swanage Coastguard Team to a climbing incident in the area of Cattle Troughs near to Dancing Ledge Swanage.

Swanage Lifeboat and the Rescue helicopter from Portland, (Rescue 106) were also tasked recovering a male from the water.

The injured climber was flown to Dorchester County Hospital where he was sadly pronounced deceased.   Our thoughts are with his family at this time.
