St Abbs diver flown for 'bends' hospital treatment
A diver has been airlifted to hospital with a suspected case of decompression sickness, coastguards said.
The diver was picked up from St Abbs in the Scottish Borders on Saturday afternoon by a helicopter scrambled from RAF Boulmer in Northumberland.
He was suffering from breathing difficulties and was taken to Aberdeen Royal Infirmary, which is the nearest site with decompression facilities.
A Forth Coastguard spokesman said no further details were available.
