A man has been airlifted to hospital after falling from the Great Orme at Llandudno, Conwy.

Holyhead coastguards scrambled cliff rescuers and an inshore RNLI lifeboat from Llandudno at about 16:00 GMT.

The man was discovered to have fallen about 30ft (nine metres) on the landward side of the Orme, and an RAF Sea King helicopter was called.

Coastguards said the man was airlifted on a spinal board to Ysbyty Gwynedd, Bangor. His condition is unknown.
