Four divers rescued from water north of St Abbs

Four divers had to be rescued from the water after their boat broke down north of St Abbs in the Scottish Borders.

The coastguard responded to a call for assistance at about 10:45 on Saturday. The divers were helped from the water by local dive charter boats.

One of the divers, who was suspected to be suffering from bends, was airlifted by the coastguard to a specialist treatment facility in Aberdeen.

The other divers and their boat were taken ashore by an RNLI lifeboat.
