Emergency services respond to a paraglider who crashed in Newhaven

Newhaven Coastguard Team were tasked this afternoon to a paraglider that had crashed into the dense gorse bushes besides Newhaven Fort.

Working alongside East Sussex Fire and Rescue Service, the team located the casualty, cleared a lengthy path to reach them, assessed for injuries and then extracted them to a point of safety.

The casualty and their wing were fortunate to suffer no injuries, due to their fall being cushioned by the soft (albeit spikey) gorse and brambles.

Coastal emergency dial 999 Coastguard.
