A climber had to be winched to safety by firefighters after getting stuck around 75ft from the top of a cliff.
The man, in his early-twenties, had been stranded on Abbot’s Cliff near Capel-le-Ferne for about 45 minutes.
His climbing partner had managed to climb to the top and call the emergency services just before 7pm last night.
Two fire engines from Folkestone, the specialist line rescue team from Deal fire station, coastguard, police and the Hazardous Area Response Team responded to the man's plight.
Folkestone Watch Manager, Chris Redmond said: "Crews worked quickly to find the man and used specialist line rescue equipment to reach him.
"He was placed in a rescue sling and winched up to the top safely by one of our line rescue team from Deal.
"We are pleased to have had such a successful outcome and that the man had no apparent injuries."
