THE coastguard helicopter was asked to take a patient to hospital in the early hours yesterday.

The helicopter, based at the Daedalus airfield in Lee-on-the-Solent, was called at around 2am to the Isle of Wight.

A patient needed an urgent transfer to Queen Alexandra Hospital in Cosham.

The helicopter returned to base once the transfer was completed.
