Nothe Fort

Two men have been injured after walking on rocks near the Nothe Fort in Weymouth.

Coastguards say they were making their way from the Stone Pier when one of them fell, pulling the other over.

The coastguard helicopter's airlifted both to the Dorset County Hospital, one with head injuries, the other with leg injuries.

Officials don't believe they were trying to avoid paying to watch the sailing...in any case sailing was suspended at the time due to light winds.
