A climber was rescued after falling from a route at a Derbyshire crag.

The Derby man, in his 40s, fell a short distance on Harboro’ Rocks, near Brassington, on Sunday.

He suffered a dislocated and suspected broken ankle in the fall.

Derby Mountain Rescue Team was called out at 2.45pm at the request of ambulance crew members and the Derbyshire Leicestershire and Rutland Air Ambulance also flew to the scene.

A Derby MRT spokesperson said: “The Helimed doctor administered pain relief and reduced the dislocation.
