Amaz­ing cliff plunge es­cape

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

TWO farm­work­ers had an amaz­ing es­cape when a trac­tor plunged 150ft over a cliff on the north Corn­wall coast.

Coast­guards raced to the scene af­ter get­ting a call from a hor­ri­fied man on a boat who had seen the trac­tor and trailer top­ple from the cliff near Crack­ing­ton Haven.

Po­lice, Corn­wall Fire and Res­cue, the RNLI, Corn­wall Air Am­bu­lance and three cliff res­cue teams launched a ma­jor op­er­a­tion.

But when they checked the trac­tor, rest­ing up­side down on a ledge down the cliff face, they found it was empty.

The pair who had been pulling rag­wort from a field when the trac­tor started rolling back­wards.

They man­aged to scram­ble clear sec­onds be­fore it smashed through a gate and top­pled over the edge.

Sadly – bril­liant though the Jimmy McGovern-penned se­ries is – it hasn’t found time to dis­play the fine as­sets of two of its lovely stars.

Stun­ning ac­tress Anne Marie Duff, 41, might have kept her norks un­der wraps on the show last night.

But she had no prob­lem whip­ping them out when she starred in movie The Magde­lene Sis­ters in 2002.


For­mer Shame­less star Anne Marie plays a hair­dresser who stands up to a group of gang­sters on the pro­gramme.

And it’s a boob dou­ble whammy
