A man who fell 15ft from a bridge into the River Weaver in Nantwich was rescued by fire crews.

The man plunged into the cold waters shortly before 3am yesterday (March 24) off the Welsh Row bridge.

Firefighters from Nantwich, Chester, Lymm, Ellesmere Port and Powey Lane were called out to the incident and found the man partly submerged in the river.

The team used a 7-metre ladder and a safety pack to rescue the casualty and he was passed to the care of paramedics.

Firefighters were kept at the scene for around 35 minutes.
