Falmouth Coastguard says it appears that a woman fell off the Old Quay at Old Grimsby whilst riding a bicycle.

The woman was found at around 6.30am on Sunday morning and it’s thought she may have been on the beach since the early hours of the morning. They believe that the woman, aged in her 20s, works on the island.

Tresco Coastguard were mobilised along with ambulance staff.

The patient was put on a spinal board and flown out directly from Old Grimsby at around 7.45am.

It’s thought the woman has fractured her skull, back and leg.
