Emergency services carried out a testing rescue to help two people who had fallen down a ravine in the woods in the middle of the night.

Paramedics were called to Danes Wood at Flamborough at around 1.45am on Sunday .

Because of the difficult location, they immediately asked for Bridlington Coastguard Rescue Team to help them.

Due to the suspected injuries of the first casualty, a decision was made to place them into a technical rope rescue system to bring to the top of the ravine.

The second casualty was carried out by the coastguard team and then passed over to the ambulance service.

Filey Coastguard Rescue Team and Humberside Police officers were also involved.
