THE Mallorca emergency services had a morning of tricky rescues from difficult to reach spots on the island on Thursday.
Bombers de Mallorca firefighting teams and Guardia Civil were called out to two incidents at more or less the same time, around 9.30am.
In one incident a fisherman tumbled about five metres down rocks in Punta Manresa in Alcudia.
