Double Cliff Rescue at Anvil Point

The volunteer Coastguard Rescue Officers from Swanage and St Albans teams were tasked this afternoon to Anvil Point.

Two climbers, ,one aged 15 were in need of rescuing from the base of the cliff having got tired.
The male had climbed up to use the emergency phone at Anvil Point before returning to keep the female company until the Coastguard arrived.

The Volunteer RNLI inshore lifeboat joined the rescue effort to provide safety cover.

The teams set up the rope equipment and sent the cliff technician down and brought the 15 year old female up first, before returning for the male climber who was with her.

Neither climber needed any medical treatment.

All rescue teams were released at 18.30
