Waterfall plunge man flown to hospital by air ambulance

A walker has been airlifted to hospital with chest and possible spinal injuries after falling from a Cumbrian waterfall.

The North West Ambulance Service alerted Patterdale Mountain Rescue Team at 1.42pm today that the man had fallen from above Aira Force.

He was found at the foot of the falls.

The team lowered an air ambulance paramedic and team members to him before he was hoisted out of the water and up the bank to the North West Air Ambulance helicopter.

Is it time to reintroduce the dog licence?

Yes - It would certainly make people more responsible about looking after their pets

No - Some people will just abandon dogs whether they've paid for a licence or not

Maybe - but also all dogs should be microchipped and tagged so owners can be traced
