Dorset beach leg-break victim Tim Robinson 'lucky to be alive'

A man who crawled with a broken leg for more than two hours after falling from rocks on the Dorset coast is recovering at home.

Tim Robinson, 54, from Hilton, Derbyshire, slipped while walking under Golden Cap, east of Lyme Regis, on the Jurassic Coast, on 8 January.

He said he is "lucky to be alive" due to the rising tide and the possibility of being crushed by "car-sized" rocks.

He was saved after using a pocket torch to send a Morse code signal.
