A couple's wedding day took a unique twist when it was gatecrashed by the local Mountain Rescue Team!

Skye Mountain Rescue were responding to their second incident in 24 hours.

A US citizen had sustained an ankle injury at the Old Man of Storr and required airlifting to hospital by the coastguard helicopter.

The incident took place at the same time as the couple's wedding ceremony.  Skye Mountain Rescue said: "It was sirens and not wedding bells for this happy couple...

"Luckily some expert intervention from Helen ensured the bride's dress was protected from the helicopter's downdraft!"
