Dales couple hurt in embankment fall

Two people were injured when they fell down a steep embankment in the Yorkshire Dales.

The couple, both in their early 30s, were hurt when a dry stone wall collapsed and they fell down the bank.

They were near the Upper Wensleydale Business Park in Hawes, said North Yorkshire Fire Service.

The man was taken to hospital by air ambulance with suspected abdominal and leg injuries and his partner was taken by road with possible pelvic injuries.
