A Caledonian MacBrayne ferry was enlisted to help in the rescue of two divers in the Firth of Clyde.

The MV Jupiter which sails between Gourock and Dunoon was diverted at about 11.30 BST to assist the men.

It is understood one had difficulty getting ashore.

Clyde Coastguard was scrambled along with Helensburgh lifeboat.

It is not clear which vessel took them ashore.

The men were taken to Inverclyde Royal Infirmary as a precaution.
