A lifeboat crew today helped a man who had broken his leg while walking his dog at Gravesend.

Crews were called to the seawall between Denton and Shornemead at just after 8.30am.

An ambulance paramedic, who had walked nearly a mile along the seawall to reach the casualty, had requested the lifeboat as the easiest way of recovering him.
