A teenage girl who fell from a cliff in Arlesey earlier this week is now out of hospital with ‘no long-term injuries,’ her mother has told the Comet.

The teenager, who fell from a cliff at the Blue Lagoon lake, is “badly bruised and shaken up” but has been “very lucky to escape long-term injuries,” her mother said.

“We want to thank the community for all their messages of support, and just want to let everyone know that she is OK, and this could have been much, much worse.”

On Monday, the girl was transported by air ambulance to Addenbrooke’s Hospital with reported “life-threatening” injuries.

The Blue & Green Lagoon Arlesey fishing club issued a statement on its Facebook page, saying: “We would personally like to thank the bailiff on duty at the time for his swift actions, and to all those bailiffs that attended to help the amazing crews of the emergency services throughout the entire incident.
