A man was rescued by emergency services last night after falling off a 12-foot wall banking the River Sett in New Mills.

The male, whose age is unconfirmed, fell over the short wall running along Hyde Bank Road, with a long drop on the other side and had to be aided by firefighters, paramedics and police who were also in attendance. Firefighters were called at around 8:30pm and extricated the male with the use of a short extension ladder and first aid was administered by paramedics.
