A seriously injured man was airlifted to hospital after plunging 90ft in a moorland cave yesterday.

The 37-year-old was exploring Ireby Fell Cavern in Lancashire but near Ingleton, North Yorkshire, when he fell.

He was given emergency first aid by members of the Bolton Cave Rescue organisation before they hoisted him to the surface. A helicopter from RAF Leconfield then carried him to the Royal Preston Hospital where his condition was described as "quite serious".
