A CLIMBER is in hospital after suffering serious injuries in a fall at The Roaches, near Leek, yesterday afternoon (May 31).
Buxton Mountain Rescue Team assisted emergency services workers in removing the injured man from the rock face in the Hen Cloud area.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: "Ambulance staff managed to access the patient who had come to rest halfway up the hillside.
"The man was found to have suffered multiple injuries in the incident.
"Ambulance staff began treating the injured man and once safe to do so, carefully moved him to a place of safety.
"Air ambulance staff, including a doctor, then administered specialist trauma care before the man was taken to the Royal Stoke University Hospital in a serious condition."
