A 22-year-old British woman out climbing in the Orihuela municipality on the Sierra de la Muela on Tuesday had to be rescued by helicopter after she broke her leg whilst she was descending down the Pared Negra (Black Wall), which is one of the most dangerous parts of the area for climbers.

The woman, who was reported to be from Wales, was conscious after suffering a four-metre fall, with the Orihuela local police and firefighters drafted in to rescue her after getting an emergency phone call. A helicopter was brought in to take her down to a nearby car park, with an ambulance then transferring her to the Vega Baja Hospital.
