Injured fisherman aided by lifeboat
DUNBAR'S RNLI lifeboat rushed the station's medical officer to the aid of an injured fisherman on Friday after fears he had lost part of his hand.
The fishing boat skipper alerted coastguards about lunchtime after the man got his hand trapped in winch gear aboard the vessel which was 10 miles north-east of Torness Power Station.
RNLI coxswain Gary Fairbairn said: "It was clear we were dealing with a potentially very severe injury so we picked up our station medical officer Dr Neil Black on the way to Torness.
"We got Dr Black on board with a crew first aider and they were able to stabilise the crewman and concluded that the injuries were not as bad as first feared.
"The injured party elected to stay on board his boat, the Excell from Banff, after first aid."
