Cheshire Fire and Rescue Services used a boat and a hydraulic platform in order to rescue the man before handing him into the care of paramedics.

He was then taken to Warrington Hospital, although his injuries are not believed to be serious.

Four fire engines were called to the incident, and remained on the scene for around an hour-and-a-half.
