Base jumper rescued from Dorset radio transmitter

A base jumper has been rescued after getting stuck on a radio transmitter.

It happened at about 20:15 BST on Tuesday in Rampisham Down – a chalk hill in the Dorset Downs known for its many BBC World Service transmitter pylons.

Crews isolated the transmitters before a technical rescue team released and lowered the person to safety, Dorset and Wiltshire Fire Service said.

The jumper was then taken to hospital as a precautionary measure.

Base jumping is the recreational sport of jumping from fixed objects, using a parachute to descend to the ground.
