Four fishermen have been honoured for their bravery in saving the life of one of their crewmates.

All were on board the Fraserburgh-based Renown off the coast of Norway last May when Bill Stephen fell overboard.

Crewmen James Hendry, James McKay, Ewan Lambert and skipper James Buchan managed to get Mr Stephen back on board and revived him.

All received their awards from the Royal Humane Society at a ceremony at the Fraserburgh Fishermen's Mission.
