AN injured climber has been dramatically rescued from an 80-metre cliff face after injuring her leg.
The incident happened on July 12 when Ballycastle Coastguard and Coleraine Coastguard were called to a serious incident at Fair Head.
Officers from the PSNI also attended the scene.
Speaking after the incident station officer in charge of the Coleraine Coastguard Team, Chris Little, said: "People travel from far and wide to climb the cliffs at Fair Head. It is one of the places that climbers would aspire to visit. Most of the people that visit there would be experienced climbers."
The alarm was raised when a female climber, who was out climbing with a male partner, fell five feet and was left hanging from the cliff by a rope.
