Woman rescued after fall

A woman was airlifted from a coastal trail at Hushinish in Harris yesterday afternoon (Monday) having fallen and broken her ankle.

Police and ambulance were called and the Tarbert Coastguard team proceeded to the scene where they called for Stornoway Coastguard to send the helicopter as the location made it difficult to deliver the the patient by stretcher.

She was flown to Stornoway where she was taken to Western Isles Hospital by ambulance.
