A man has been taken to hospital after falling from Arbroath cliffs.

A major rescue operation was launched just after 5pm on Sunday after reports the man had fallen at the cliffs – which are more than 200ft tall at some points.

Arbroath, Stonehaven and Dundee coastguard teams attended the incident alongside both RNLI lifeboats and medics from the Scottish Ambulance Service.

A spokeswoman for HM Coastguard confirmed the lifeboat rescued the man and took him to Arbroath Harbour.

“He was taken to hospital to be treated for his injuries.”

The man’s condition is not known.
