Divers airlifted off Dorset coast to bends unit

Three divers were airlifted to safety after one of them started to show symptoms of the bends off the Dorset coast.

The group, all from Northampton, were diving off Portland when one of them became unwell on Saturday afternoon.

There were concerns for the other two divers as they had followed the same diving profile as the 49-year-old.

After advice from a dive doctor the three were airlifted by the coastguard to a recompression chamber in Poole.
