Divers with bends flown to hospital in Pembrokeshire

Two divers suffering from the bends have been airlifted to hospital after getting into trouble off Skomer Island in Pembrokeshire.

Milford Haven Coastguard was called at about 1230 BST and launched rescue helicopters from RAF Chivenor in Devon.

The two divers and another who was feeling unwell but did not have the bends, or decompression sickness, were flown to Withybush Hospital in Haverfordwest.

All had been on a charter boat.
