A merchant seaman from a Dutch cargo ship was taken to hospital in Stornoway on Friday night.

The bulk carrier MV Elena diverted into the port as she sailed southbound down the Minch on her voyage to Ireland.

Earlier, her skipper had radioed for medical advice regarding the casualty.

An ambulance met the vessel as she docked and Stornoway Coastguard rescue team assisted with transferring the casualty to hospital.
