Emergency responders from five separate organisations were scrambled to help rescue three divers from the water at St Abb’s Head yesterday afternoon.
Eyemouth Coastguard, alongside crews from Berwick, Dunbar, North Berwick, and St Abbs, were called to the rocky outcrop in Berwickshire at around 3:30pm on Sunday.
One diver was taken to St Abbs Lifeboat Station, while the other two were taken to Eyemouth harbour before being transferred to the Coastguard helicopter.
Their condition is not yet known.
A spokesperson for HM Coastguard said it was still unclear how the divers got into difficulty, but added that all three were pulled from the water quickly.
In a post on Facebook, Eyemouth Coastguard told followers: “Remember, if you see anyone in danger on our coastline, dial 999 and ask for the Coastguard.”
The coastline near St Abbs is known for its jagged rocks and high cliffs.
