A TEENAGER was rescued by firefighters after she slipped and got her leg stuck between rocks around Morecambe’s Stone Jetty.

Fire crews from Lancaster and Morecambe were joined by police, paramedics and the RNLI at the scene at 8.20pm last night, Tuesday, September 20.

They used a specialist airbag and blocks to free the 18-year-old.

She was taken to the Royal Lancaster Infirmary but was not thought to have suffered any fractures.

Firefighter Paul Morris, of Morecambe Fire Station, said: “She had slipped while walking on the rocks, which is a very dangerous thing to do, especially in the evening when you cannot see your footing.

“She was about ten feet from the jetty walkway but it was a low tide and she was quite high up.

“She was quite distressed but I don’t think her leg was broken.”
