A WOMAN was airlifted to hospital after her car plunged over the edge of a cliff at Flamborough.

The 32-year-old woman is thought to have driven a silver BMW car through a fence, before plunging down the cliff face at North Landing, on Tuesday.

The car travelled down the steep grassy bank, and came to a stop just before it fell over a sheer edge.

The Bridlington coastguard search and rescue team, firefighters, the ambulance service and a response paramedic all attended the scene along with the Flamborough lifeboat, the search and rescue helicopter from RAF Leconfield and the Yorkshire Air Ambulance.

The car was secured by emergency services perilously close to a sheer drop into the water and the woman, who had injuries to her hip, leg and pelvis, was then taken to Hull Royal Infirmary by the RAF rescue helicopter – and was kept in hospital overnight on Wednesday for observation.
