Police and ambulance services were called to the beauty spot after a walker broke their ankle just before 3pm on Monday.

Local police and ambulance staff including the Hazardous Area Response Team (HART) were joined by National Trust rangers to help rescue the woman from the hilly plateau.

An announcement on social media by South Shropshire's Safer Neighbour Teams said: "Another joint agency rescue on the Long Mynd today.

"A female had been walking and fell and broke her ankle. This required local police with 4×4, HART, WMAS and National Trust rangers."

West Midlands Ambulance Service has been approached for comment.
