At 8.30pm on Friday an air ambulance landed on the top of the Derbyshire beauty spot to assist an injured person who had fallen about five meters down the vertical cliff.

Two mountain rescue vehicles and an ambulance arrived near the bottom of the edge soon after, with the teams assisting with initial treatment at the site of the accident.
