An elderly man's been airlifted to hospital after falling and sustaining a head injury at Osmington Mills.

It happened around 1.27pm on Saturday afternoon.

Paramedics couldn't get the air ambulance to the pensioner as there was nowhere to land.

The coastguard was scrambled and the victim was winched into the Rescue Helicopter and flown to Dorset County Hospital.
