Coastguard Rescue Teams from Ness and Bragar were called to Port of Ness on Wednesday afternoon (September 25th) after a woman broke her ankle on the coastal path.

The teams and area commander Murdo Macaulay were asked for support at 4.40pm as the woman was on rough ground and Scottish Ambulance was unable to get to her.

The all-terrain vehicle, with two trained operators from Stornoway Coastguard Rescue Team, was taken to Port and teams carried the woman by stretcher out to the road, from where she was taken onwards by ambulance to Western Isles Hospital.

All teams were stood down after the incident closed at 6.46pm.
