Stornoway Coastguard’s emergency evacuation of Rockall adventurer Cam Cameron is to feature in the new series of Channel 5’s fly-on-the-wall Coastguard documentary series.

Season 2 of the popular series begins on Sunday (April 28), and the dramatic rescue from Rockall will be featured in the Sunday, May 5 episode.

Cam Cameron attempted to beat the longest occupation of the rocky Atlantic islet, but he was forced to broadcast a MayDay after severe weather washed away most of his kit. He only avoided being swept away by attaching a safety line to himself.

Since the expedition last year, there has been a much-delayed return to the rock to conduct a clean-up operation. The latest bid was called off last week due to the weather forecast for the area.
