A 17-year-old Donegal girl, who had been missing since early yesterday morning, has been found at the foot of cliffs near her home. Angela McHugh, from Carrick, near Killybegs, is believed to have been stranded after falling down the cliffs at Shalway. Rescue services were alerted when her jacket was found on the clifftop this morning.

She was picked up by helicopter and was taken to Sligo General Hospital with shoulder and leg injuries. Her condition is said to be stable. A spokesman for Malin Head Rescue Co-ordination Centre said she was lucky to have survived exposure for so long.
