A man had a "very, very narrow escape" after he fell 30ft down a cliff while "trying to take photos".

The man, who is in his 20s, fell at Durdle Door, in Dorset, at about 18:30 BST.

He had been walking with his partner when he tried to take the photos and slipped and fell, Portland Coastguard said.

Two coastal rescue teams were called to help the man, from Hounslow in west London.
