A WALKER who broke his leg on a remote footpath last night (Wednesday) was rescued by Isle of Wight Ambulance Service and Bembridge Coastguards.
The man, who was walking between Brading and Nunwell, was believed to be a holiday-maker staying with a family in Brading, however they were unable to move him the quarter of a mile to the nearest road, according to coastguards.
Coastguards were then called to assist the ambulance service to help move the man, from the difficult to reach spot.
Coastguard station officer Martin Groom said: "We were pleased to be able to offer personnel and a 4x4 vehicle to help the ambulance service.
"After the recent wet weather the footpaths have become very slippery and we would urge walkers to take extra care."
The man was taken to St Mary’s Hospital.
