A man has been rescued by a specialist rope team from the Isle of Man Fire and Rescue Service after the car he was driving became stuck 20 feet down a ravine.

The incident happened near to Conrhenny Equestrian Centre around midday, when three vehicles from Douglas Fire Station were called to the scene.

The man, who had managed to get out of the car, was lifted to safety once crews arrived. He was found to be in a stable condition but was taken to Noble’s Hospital for checks.
