Kyle Lifeboat came to the aid of a capsized kayaker yesterday (Wednesday 17.)

Kyle Lifeboat was launched at 2:54pm at the request of the UK Coastguard after a member of a kayaking group capsized in rough weather and was trapped in the water approximately 1 mile west of the Skye bridge.

The lifeboat arrived on scene within 3 minutes, by which time a local fishing boat had arrived to offer assistance.

The lifeboat took the female casualty on board and assessed her condition, before transferring her to the waiting ambulance at the pontoons in Kyle.
