A MAN has been rescued from Clent Hills after falling down a hole and injuring his leg.

West Midlands Ambulance Service paramedics were called to the ‘four stones’ at the summit of the Worcestershire beauty spot at around 1.20pm this afternoon (Monday).

The man, believed to be in his 40s, was unable to walk to safety after reportedly falling into a hole.

A spokesman for the service said: "The man, who couldn’t bear weight on his leg, was given pain relief and was treated for a suspected fractured ankle.

“Due to the location of the incident the Hazardous Area Response Team deployed their 6x6 all-terrain vehicle to safely bring the man down to the awaiting ambulance, which was located in the car park at the bottom of the hill.

“The man was conveyed to Queen Elizabeth Hospital for further assessment and treatment.”
