A worker had to be rescued after falling down a five-metre hole at a caravan site in Perthshire.
Fire crews were called at 1.30am on Monday after the 28-year-old woman fell within the Mains of Taymouth grounds at the back of the site in Kenmore.
Mountain Rescue teams were informed as officers from across Perthshire attended the scene.
Crews were forced to negotiate the embankment using a ladder and rope to reach the woman, who worked at the park.
She was treated for neck and back injuries at the scene before being taken to hospital.
Ewan Baird, of Tayside Fire and Rescue, said: “This was an extremely dangerous situation the female staff member found herself in which could have resulted in multiple injuries. Fortunately the swift action of her colleagues calling the emergency services assisted her.”
"Anyone digging a hole of this magnitude must ensure the safety of members of the public especially when it is so close to a community, safety barriers and warning signs must be positioned to prevent incidents like this, where consequences could be far more serious."
