The Stornoway Coastguard rescue team was called out yesterday (Friday May 8) to assist the Scottish Ambulance Service to recover a casualty with a suspected broken hip from Traigh Mor in Tolsta.

The team used their Yamaha Viking All Terrain Vehicle to transport the casualty back to the ambulance at the car park where she was then taken on to Western Isles Hospital.

Area commander Murdo Macaulay said on Twitter: “Yamaha Viking All Terrain Vehicle was put to good use yesterday…This machine continues to prove its versatility every time we deploy it.”
