A 19-year-old has been airlifted to hospital after suffering a suspected spinal injury while coasteering off Newquay.

The teenager suffered the injury after jumping off rocks in to the sea at around 11.26am and was supported by fellow group members while help arrived.

She was transported to Crantock beach by Newquay RNLI on an inshore boat and assisted by lifeguards as she was put on a search-and-rescue helicopter from RNAS Culdrose.

She was taken to Royal Cornwall Hospital Treliske at around midday to receive treatment for her injuries.
